Bariatric Support Group
If you have had bariatric surgery or are interested in learning more about bariatric surgery, please join us! Our bariatric support groups are designed to provide individuals with an opportunity to share information, offer support, gain insight and become aware of options in coping with the challenges of living with obesity.
Occasionally we have speakers, including dietitians, exercise specialists, counselors or other specialists who will share their knowledge and experiences on a variety of topics of interest to bariatric support group participants. We also have a clothing exchange twice a year and a potluck or picnic. The group helps plan the meetings. We encourage your feedback and input.
The bariatric support group is for informational and support purposes only. It should not be used as a substitute for consultation or care with your healthcare professional.
Meetings are held the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 pm at Mercy - Regency, 621 South Illinois Avenue, Mason City.
