Support Groups

Welcome to our Bariatric Support Groups! Whether you’ve had Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Bypass, Gastric Banding, or some other type of weight loss surgery, our Support Groups can be a valuable resource for you to reach and maintain your weight loss goals.

Our Support Groups are free and open to those who are contemplating weight loss surgery, those who have already undergone the surgery, and to patient supporters interested in gaining insight and learning more about surgical treatment of obesity. Our meetings offer education, encouragement, and support every step of the way to show you how to make your surgery a success long term, so you can finally live the life you’ve always dreamed – a healthy life free from obesity.

The meetings are held every 3rd Thursday of the month, (except November and December due to the holidays) from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, at Parham Doctors’ Hospital in MOB III in Suite 314. The meetings are facilitated by a Certified Bariatric Registered Nurse and/or a Registered Dietitian.
