Yahoo Support Group

In-Office Support Group Meetings
Run by one of our dietitians, our in-office support group offers lectures on exercise, nutrition, body image, and more. Guest speakers are frequently invited to speak and there is time for patients to share information. These meetings are for all patients, not just those who may be having problems. Visit our Patient Events Calendar for locations, times and dates.
