Seminars & Support Groups
The Center for Bariatric and General Surgery offers free informational seminars about bariatric surgery on a regular basis. Our seminars are the best way for you to learn more about the surgical options in a relaxed environment. In the open forum, attendees can ask questions and receive answers directly from the surgeons and the Bariatric Services team. Seminars are held at Sacred Heart Hospital as well as off-site locations in the area.
Upcoming informational seminars about bariatric surgery will be held in the SHH Reception Room on the following dates/times:

We strongly encourage you to attend support group meetings to help you make the lifestyle changes you need. Studies have shown that patients who regularly attend support group are more successful with weight loss than those who don’t.
