Please call before attending any community events. It is likely that they will be postponed or canceled as a result of the coronavirus. You can find CDC coronavirus information at cdc.gov/coronavirus; AARP has additional resources at aarp.org/coronavirus.

Our online support groups, held the first and third Tuesday of every month, are a chance for post-operative patients to gather, share experiences, get ideas and most of all, gain support from peers. They can be an excellent opportunity to talk about your frustrations, victories and challenges after weight loss surgery as well.

Attending online support groups can be helpful for someone one month out of surgery or five years out of surgery. Come prepared with questions and be willing to participate. Communication and openness are the keys to this group's success.

The Weight Loss Surgery team is continuing to provide support for patients who have had surgery at BIDMC. We are offering our virtual groups at the same time as they would usually meet in person.

Our post-op support groups are held online via the Zoom video conferencing tool. To join the support group, click on the button below.
