HWFL Phase 4 - University of Sydney Evaluation

A new initiative, currently available to HCF member graduates of a HWFL program, aimed at providing ongoing support, structure and monitoring to help matain their new healthier weight for the long term.

As this is an important new program, we are working with researchers at the University of Sydney to assess the impact of the program. They will use de-identified information to evaluate the effects of the program. No information that identifies you will be shared with the researchers. Taking part in this evaluation study is voluntary and you can withdraw at any time without your decision affecting your relationship with the University of Sydney, the HWFL team or your health fund. Results of the study may be published but you will not be identifiable.
