Support Groups

Whether you are preparing for or have already had weight loss surgery, support groups are an opportunity for you to learn from others who are going through the same process. Talking to someone who understands the challenges of weight loss can be a way to to ask questions, and get support in a safe environment. Support groups are facilitated by experienced bariatric professionals who can offer education to help you during your weight loss journey. Support group meetings are free, do not require sign up, and most are open to all patients. There is one group a month that is designated as "post-op only," which are also listed on the schedule.
