Bariatric Support Group

Get the Support You Need

West Suburban Medical Center offers a monthly Bariatric Support Group at the River Forest Medical Campus that is free of charge. The Support Group is held on the 3rd Monday of every month at 6 p.m. and is facilitated by our Registered Dietitian.

Topics discussed include “eating out,” “cooking for your family,” and “plastic surgery,” among others. The support groups are informal and we encourage participants to discuss any topics that they feel strongly about regarding their surgery and post-op lifestyle. Our goal is to create a group for people with common experiences and concerns who provide emotional and moral support for one another.

No registration required.

NOTE: Due to coronavirus, Support Group sessions may be online. Call for more information.
