Attending a monthly peer support group meeting is an effective strategy for dealing with both physical and emotional issues that may accompany weight-loss surgery. Other bariatric patients can provide support, encouragement and empathy. These meetings are professionally guided by our clinicians and dietitians. The meeting is a group discussion, supplemented with supportive materials, special activities and guest speakers.
This month's topic is Dr. Grand: Managing Emotional Eating (Stress & Coping Mechanisms).
