Bariatric Support Group
Following bariatric surgery, it is important for you to participate in activities that provide continued support, encouragement and education. These types of activities will help you adjust to and maintain your new lifestyle, thus enhancing your weight-loss success. We encourage you to attend our free, drop-in support group meetings as often as possible. The meetings, open to patients of the Sentara Martha Jefferson Bariatric Care Center following surgery, are typically facilitated by one of our Registered Dietitians, and occasionally by one of our surgeons or another staff member.
