Event Series Event Series (See All)

June 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm 6:30 pm

The Bariatric Surgery Weight Loss Support Group meets on the first Thursday of each month from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. These meetings are virtual. Please RSVP to confirm your attendance, before the support group begins.

You can expect a 30-minute education session by one of our staff members, followed by a 60-minute interactive open discussion and question-and-answer session.

These support groups are open to all pre-op and post-op bariatric surgery patients, regardless of where they have had surgery.

We also encourage patients planning on surgery to attend at least one support group prior to surgery.
