All Bariatric Support Groups Postponed Until Further Notice
To continue to keep us all as healthy as possible as our community deals with this novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we're postponing all support groups. You can still read about our groups, below. We'll keep you informed when support groups will resume. In the meantime you can still be part of our support community by joining us on Facebook.
Patient-Focused Support Groups
From our surgeon-led seminars to our bariatric support groups, our team will give you all of the tools you need to be successful after surgery. The process of adjusting to life after surgery will take some time and effort, but we’ll do all we can to help you stay on course.
We offer a variety of support groups, each with a different patient focus. Each group offers monthly topics to help expand your knowledge of what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle. Each is offered at different times throughout the week to help better fit into your schedule. A professional facilitates each group and will have a presentation prepared on a variety of subjects from exercise, food and nutrition, stress, behavior change and much more.
