Support Group
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. Sacred Heart Hospital’s support group welcomes pre-surgery as well as post-surgery patients.
