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.

We welcome anyone who has had weight-loss (bariatric) surgery, those contemplating weight-loss surgery, as well as their family and friends to share their experiences, and learn about the different aspects of the weight-loss surgery journey.

Successful weight loss requires commitment to a healthy lifestyle, which includes mindful eating, scheduled exercise, and health education.

We recommend attending support group meetings to learn from others with similar experiences, share your accomplishments and challenges, and to gain and provide encouragement.

Support group meetings are held virtually via Webex. Once you register, you will receive Webex meeting details prior to the meeting.

Questions? Please contact the bariatric surgery program coordinators, Aileem Schilling, RD, LDN, at aschilling@mhs.net or Lourdes Aponte, RN, at laponte@mhs.net.
