Abstract

The Live Life Healthy (LLH) program project provided a free or low cost, physical activity and healthy eating programs in the Fraser Coast Regions with a focus on adults over 18 years of age not in full time employment. The aim of the project was to reduce overweight and obesity in the community by raising awareness of the benefits of healthy lifestyle behaviours and enhancing skills to develop healthier eating habits and patterns of physical activity, particularly in community members who are at risk of developing lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disease and type2 diabetes.

Specific objectives of the project were to:
a) promote and improve nutrition knowledge and healthy eating habits
b) increase the number of community members who are physically active and participate in regular physical activity
c) support community members to develop the skills required to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The study question for this evaluation was: How effective are the Live Life Healthy Program - Healthy Communities Initiative in meeting the aims and objectives of this initiative?

The Centre for Rural and Remote Area Health, University of Southern Queensland (USQ), is commissioned to conduct an independent evaluation of the Live Life Healthy Program, Healthy Communities Initiative.
