Seminars and Support Groups

Join us for Bariatric Support Group!  Meet with others who have had weight loss surgery or who are researching surgical options.  These meetings are educational and supportive.  Come share your experience with others in a fun and exciting environment.  It is an excellent opportunity to learn from others who have experienced weight loss surgery!

Those who will be undergoing bariatric surgery are required to attend at least 1 Support Group meeting prior to being scheduled for surgery.

You do not need to call to register.  Support persons are welcome to attend.
