Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center offers monthly bariatric surgery support groups on the second and third Thursday of each month, from 5 to 6 p.m., in the Francis X. Knott conference room. There are no support groups on the fourth or fifth Thursday of the month.
Support groups are open to pre- and post-operative patients and often feature speakers presenting on topics including exercise, nutrition, plastic surgery and more. Patients often bring clothes to the meeting for a clothing swap, protein supplements to try and lots of stories and good information. Pre-operative patients can gain insight on life after surgery. You're welcome to attend one or both meetings each month.
Parking is FREE and is located in the parking garage off of Mason F. Lord Drive. Enter through the blue awning at the Bayview Medical Offices (BMO) entrance. Registration is not required for support groups.
