The Bariatric Surgery Support Group is an in-person forum designed to provide education, assistance and support for a healthier lifestyle and behaviors.

Our group is a safe, positive and supportive environment where all patients are welcome before or after surgery. Brittany McCauley, RD, LDN, and Samantha Eckardt, RD, LDN, lead this group.

Discussion within the group is focused around weight management and can include topics such as:

  • Stress/emotional eating management
  • Skill-building for long-term weight loss
  • Social support/pressures
  • Goal setting
  • Nutrition
  • Exercise

How Do I Attend?

The series will continually rotate throughout the year. Topics will vary.

Attend in-person or virtually.
