Support Groups

We strongly encourage all of our patients to attend monthly support group meetings which are led by various members of the support staff.  These meetings provide an excellent opportunity for ongoing education, for establishing long-term relationships and friendships, and for helping maintain a healthy lifestyle.  In addition, patients who regularly attend support group meetings tend to lose more weight than those who don't attend meetings.
