Bariatric Information Sessions and Support Groups
Our Bariatric Surgery Program hosts a joint monthly support group and information session for patients who have undergone any type of bariatric surgery and for potential bariatric surgery candidates.
Information sessions cover services offered in the Bariatric Surgery Program, the health risks of obesity, and how our team of bariatric health professionals will support and guide you through your journey.
The information session is an important first step in the bariatric surgery process and should be done prior to the initial appointment with the surgeon. View the information session schedule here, or complete your session online.
Support groups are led by bariatricians and dietitians, will focus on a specific topic each month and feature a Q&A session. Time also is allotted for participants also will be able to share with and support other attendees. No notification is required — just show up! View the support group schedule here.
