What is the Presentation all about?

At 9am during the 8 weeks, a health professional will give you helpful hints in meeting your goals and to help you along the journey.  They will also to bust any myths you might have about what a Dietitian, Mental health clinician, Exercise Physiologist or Lifestyle advisor conduct their consults. The types of conditions they treat and most importantly how they can help you.

Motivational SMS

Dr Tri and our health professionals will send thru a motivational SMS around Friday during the 8 weeks.

If we don’t have your mobile number, please let us know.

Don’t have a set time?

Speak to Nhi or one of our receptionists to let them know a time to come in to see the Nurse and Dr Tri for the Living Lite Clinic.

We will do our best to accommodate your time. Our aim is to spread your appointments from 8:30am to ensure that we see you and don’t keep you waiting too long.

Please do understand that sometimes, it’s beyond our control on how long it can take to see the doctor and do apologize for any delays.

We will be sending a reminder SMS with your time for your Living Lite Clinic time with Dr Tri and the nurses the day before.  The presentation time will always start at 9am.

Do I have to be here for the whole 2 hours?

We spread the consults over the 2 hours, so that we don’t overwhelm ourselves.  If you have an early appointment with the nurse and Dr Tri and you do live nearby you can go home and comeback for the presentation at 9am. You are also free to stay in the waiting room. This was a common practice with previous participants.

Why do we do it?

Our aim is to ensure that our community has a better health literacy and understand the risks that we all face with our health.

Remember, it’s a journey that we wish you will benefit from and improve the way we live our lives.

Any questions, please speak to Nhi on 8359 6266
