Weight-Loss Surgery Support Groups
Weight-loss surgery is a life-changing experience and having support from those sharing a similar experience can be a helpful part of your lasting success. Research has demonstrated that support group participation may enhance bariatric outcomes. Attending support groups has been associated with greater weight loss and greater long-term success at maintaining weight loss.
Our bariatric surgery support groups provide:
- A sense of community and outreach amongst members
- Motivation and psychological support
- Encouragement in transitioning to and maintaining new lifestyle
- Ongoing education about bariatric surgery
These groups support, guide and encourage you in your weight-loss journey. All sessions are led by a registered dietitian specializing in bariatric surgery and our certified bariatric nurse program manager.
Registration is required. Please note: Both groups meet virtually via Microsoft Teams.
