Weight Loss (Bariatric) Support Groups

The Comprehensive Adult Weight Management Program provides free support groups at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. These support groups are forums where you are encouraged to share your progress and successes as well as any problems, struggles or concerns.

 

These meetings provide valuable information for pre-operative bariatric surgery patients as well as those who have already had the surgery.  Support group meeting speakers include post-surgical patients who share their weight loss surgery experiences as well as health care professionals who discuss weight loss. A family member and/or primary support person is welcome to attend support group meetings with you. We ask that you please refrain from bringing young children to the meetings since it is often difficult for them to remain quiet for 2 hours.

 

Bariatric patient support groups for the weight loss surgery program meet regularly on a monthly basis. We offer meetings throughout the day and in the evenings.  Some of these meetings are conducted in Spanish.
