Prevea Health

Bariatric Surgery Support Group

You are not alone in this weight loss journey.

Joining a support group is a proactive step to help ensure your surgery is successful.

Prevea’s support group helps to hold patients accountable for their personal goals, offers encouragement and motivation for greater success, and helps patients overcome obstacles. You can expect to share experiences and ideas, receive emotional support and build lasting relationships.

The Prevea clinical bariatric nurse and bariatric coordinator will discuss nutrition, lifestyle changes, exercise, post- and pre-surgical issues/concerns and anything in between. Occasionally, a guest speaker will be invited to discuss a specific topic, and a local chef will hold a cooking demonstration.

The support group is open to any individual who is participating in the bariatric program or who has already had bariatric surgery.

Support group meeting topics: 

  • March- Cancelled
  • April- Cancelled
  • May- Physical Therapy (Topic TBD)
  • June-Weight of the Nation Part 3


If you have additional questions about the support group, please call (920) 436-1358.
