Support Group Calendar
Attending weight loss surgery support groups can be very beneficial regardless of where patients are in their weight loss program. GBMC's Comprehensive Obesity Management Program (COMP) support groups are FREE and give patients a chance to discuss a number of pre- and post-surgical issues they face.
Support groups provide an opportunity for patients to discuss a variety of topics and concerns. The floor is opened up to all attendees, giving them the opportunity to ask questions and share stories and advice. Additionally, support groups sometimes feature guest speakers discussing relevant topics such as exercise and post-bariatric surgery body contouring.
Patients are encouraged to attend the Support Groups as often as possible and to bring friends and family members for additional support.
All sessions are held from 6:00pm - 7:00pm
