Our monthly support groups provide a secure and friendly environment for those that have had weight loss surgery or are interested in learning more about the surgeries.
Group members -- surrounded by people who understand and support their goals -- receive up-to-date weight loss information, consider issues in context of the history of obesity, and have the opportunity to discuss personal or professional issues that arise from losing weight. Group members also learn and are given reinforcement for nutrition, exercise, and behavior modification skills.
The support groups are hosted by the dietitian and the bariatric coordinator. Studies have shown that bariatric patients who regularly attend support group meetings and follow-up with their surgeon have the greatest long-term success.
Bariatric Support Group meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm at the Lee Campus Garden Court.
For additional information about our support group, to make an appointment or talk to someone about our services, feel free to call 1-814-534-6470.
