Community Support and Resources

Memorial Wellness Center and Bariatric Support Groups: The purpose of our weight loss and wellness support groups is to share knowledge and support as we work to regain and maintain good health. Please join us, and let's help each other while we help ourselves. 

  • Persons who have undergone bariatric surgery and their family members are welcome.
  • The wellness support group is also available to anyone who is considering medical weight loss or bariatric surgery.
  • Monthly meetings held monthly at five locations.
