Bariatric Support Group Calendar
Lifestyle change can be challenging, but we are making it easier with help from the Clovis Community Medical Center Bariatric Surgery Support Groups. This is not just any support group. These are lifestyle change groups. Your life that was put on hold because of obesity is now back in high gear. Our Weight-Loss Surgery Support Groups are full of education that will not only peak your interest, but will give you practical tools to use in everyday life to increase your health, decrease unwanted weight, and get you excited about life again.
Our support groups are designed for those who have previously had metabolic/bariatric surgery, as well as those who are considering surgery and are interested in learning more. There is no cost to attend and we encourage you to bring your support team with you (i.e. spouse, friends, family, etc.). This allows for individuals to share information, offer additional support, and gain insight on dealing with the challenges you may have faced living with morbid obesity.
Our support group meetings feature a variety of speakers including:
- Registered Dietitians
- Physical Therapists
- Social Workers
- Topic specific guest speakers
Support group topics might include:
- Nutritional education by our Registered Dietitian team. They will show you how to combine healthy, low calorie, delectable foods in the right sized portions for you and/or your family.
- Lifestyle activities and exercise coaching by Clovis Community’s Physical Therapists. Their team will show you practical ways to exercise while at home, out shopping, and even at work. You don’t have to spend hours at the gym to have an exercise routine. They will show you how to make it easy.
- Getting the right mindset for achieving one’s goals with help from our Social Worker and of course our network of individuals who achieved their weight-loss goals and other life goals.
