This support groups meets monthly, in-person. At this time, masks are required upon entry to the hospital along with continued social distancing during our meetings.
The support group meetings are available for patients considering bariatric surgery and patients that are years removed from bariatric surgery. It is very important for our patients to receive ongoing education and support as topics include nutrition, mental health, fitness, wellness and mindfulness to name a few. The group also celebrates accomplishments and steps towards healthy living such as participation in marathons and 5K events.
For more information or if you have questions about this support group, contact Ginger Rock.
