Classes, Screenings & Support Groups

Weight Loss Surgery Support Group

This support group is designed to provide a collaborative system for all individuals considering weight loss surgery or those who have already had weight loss surgery. Topics discussed include common concerns/problems the post weight loss surgery patient might face: nutrition, exercise, vitamins and supplements, portion control, cooking healthy, and plastic surgery.

The Weight Loss Support Group meets the second Saturday of every month from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Concord Medical Center in the Lesher Auditorium.  Please call 925-947-3322 with any questions.
