Better Health Diabetes Group is “the kick start I needed”

This Group has been the kick start I needed” , “the Group has increased my motivation to care for my Diabetes” , “I now exercise at home between Group sessions” – just some of the positive feedback from participants attending our weekly Better Health Diabetes Group.

Now running since October last year, this weekly exercise/diet group has notched up impressive results for patients with Type 2 Diabetes. Our QSMC Dietitian/Diabetes Educator Carole Richards leads the group in conjunction with Aden Reynolds from Eurobodalla Exercise Physiology – they have now conducted 23 groups with patients receiving 170 group services.

Carole and Aden provide easy, safe and effective supervised exercise sessions plus all the good nutrition advice in a friendly, supportive one-hour weekly group session.
