Support groups offer weight-loss surgery patients an excellent opportunity to share information and concerns in a supportive community that understands their experiences. The Bariatric Center at Saint Francis offers patient support groups, as well as psychological support and dietary and nutritional counseling, to help patients achieve the best results on their weight-loss journey.
For the year 2012 there is one more support group meeting. It takes place on Nov 8th, from
5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., in Chawla Auditorium at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center.
Beginning in 2013, monthly support groups are conducted the 2nd Thursday of every month, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., in Chawla Auditorium at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center. Please note that there is no support group meeting in December.
For more information, call (860) 714-7128 or 1-800-642-9230 to register for a free information session or get information about about support groups.
