Bariatric Support Groups
Having weight-loss surgery is a big decision, but you are not in this alone. You will have a fleet of people to support you, answer your questions, encourage you, keep you accountable, help you get back on track if you have a setback and celebrate your successes. This includes our free bariatric support groups where you'll meet other people who have gone through similar weight-loss challenges.
