Seminars and Support Groups - Weight Loss Surgery
Good Samaritan hosts a support group for pre- and post-operative patients. The group is facilitated by a registered nurse (bariatric coordinator), social workers and group liaisons, including former patients and a registered dietitian. The bariatric support group is for individuals who, through shared experiences, strength and hope, are dealing with a metabolic disorder. Everyone is welcome in this process. There are no dues or fees to become a member. The group meets on a regular basis every other Monday and Tuesday at the hospital. Education and success are the common goals of the support group members and group leaders.
