New Beginnings Support Group

Our New Beginnings support group is open to all potential and current weight loss surgery patients and their families. Meetings provide an opportunity to discuss weight loss and lifestyle issues, and to ask questions and gather important insights about weight loss surgery. Guest speakers include VCU Health bariatric surgeons, plastic surgeons, dietitians, eating disorder specialists, psychologists, exercise physiologists, nurses and patients just like you.

Patients meet at 6:30 p.m. on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in the Learning Center Conference Room (Main Hospital, 1st floor across from Au Bon Pain Cafe). All potential and existing patients and families are invited to attend these informative and open sessions.
