Bariatric Support Group

Atlantic General Bariatric Center offers a monthly support group. Angela Simmons, our bariatric coordinator, moderates the sessions with Amy Gehrig and Amanda Buckley, our dieticians.

Surgical Meetings
Support group meetings are always the 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month
Time: 5:30 - 6:30 pm
Location: Conference Room at Atlantic General Bariatric Center

The first half of the meeting is educational and will alternate between nutrition and fitness. These meetings are open to pre- and post-op patients. Lots of stories are shared. Pre-op patients can gain insight on life after the surgery. We highly encourage you to attend as many meetings as you can.
