Think Well Live Well Event Series

Are you or your loved one concerned about dementia, cancer, bone or heart conditions impacting the way you live?

 

Living with a complex health condition can be challenging. A comprehensive body of academic research has uncovered the critical role that lifestyle plays in health and wellbeing. Through manageable lifestyle modifications, those living with complex health conditions may be able to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life.

 

Southern Plus, in conjunction with Edith Cowan University, have designed a unique program, based on the latest academic research by experts at Edith Cowan University. The program combines theory and practice, through interactive sessions to provide you with a toolkit to live well.
