Bariatric Support Group

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 6:00 PM and is facilitated by our Registered Dietitian.

Topics discussed include “eating out”, “cooking for your family”, & “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 the Coronavirus the March 16, 2020 Support Group session has been cancelled.
