Crouse Hospital now provides a free support group for those about to have or who have had bariatric (weight loss) surgery.
The support group - also open to family and friends - meets the second Wednesday of every month at the Marley Education Center from 4 to 6 p.m.
Registration is requested by calling

Parking is free in the Marley garage.
Healthy lifestyle management is an important part of bariatric surgery and sensitive, compassionate support is key to achieving weight loss goals.
Facilitated by Crouse Hospital’s team of specialists, the support group offers attendees the opportunity to discuss concerns, talk to people who’ve had the surgery and share experiences and gather information in a safe, friendly environment that will help them achieve physical and emotional success. In addition, each session will feature a guest speaker who will present on relevant topics.
