General Information: (434) 654-7009 OR 1-888-652-6663
Following bariatric surgery, it is important to participate in activities that provide continued support, encouragement and education. Martha Jefferson offers a free support group that provides just that. It is facilitated by registered dietitians and occasionally a bariatric surgeon. Topics include nutrition, exercise and emotional concerns.
The group meets twice a month, and patients who cannot make it in person are encouraged to call in. Registration is not required. For more information, call Health Connection at (434) 654-7009 or 1-888-652-6663.
We also encourage our post-operative patients to join our private Martha Jefferson Bariatric Support Group Facebook page, which provides additional encouragement, education, and support for our post-op patients.
