The University of South Australia (UniSA) and the City of Charles Sturt are working together on the Healthy Choices program which aims to support people who are living with chronic health conditions to better manage their health and make healthier lifestyle choices every day.
Over a 12 week period, you will have weekly sessions with supervised UniSA health students, working in partnership to develop an individual program and together learning about your own health and chronic conditions, how to set health and wellbeing goals, and find the best local supports and activities to achieve these goals. This could range from healthy choices around social and physical activities through to food, sleep and hobbies.
The Healthy Choices program is a free service and will be based at the City of Charles Sturt Civic Centre, Woodville Road, Woodville.
You will be playing an important role in the students’ learning and development as health professionals by asking them questions and building their knowledge base, giving them the opportunity to practice and apply their communication and critical thinking skills and giving the students exposure to real-life experiences.
