Salinas' Natividad Medical Center Hosts Series of Monthly Weight Loss Seminars and Support Groups in 2018
If you are looking into weight-loss surgery and need information from professionals, Natividad Medical Center is hosting a series of seminars and support groups in 2018.
Weight-loss surgery is one of those major life decisions that can help spark a lasting change in your lifestyle.
All patients need to attend a seminar before surgery can be scheduled. For many patients, this will be their first step in looking into weight-loss surgery.
In addition, Natividad hosts monthly support groups to help post-surgery patients make their lifestyle changes stick. Support groups are a great place to network with other weight-loss surgery patients, ask questions of the nurse and registered dietitian. Research has shown that patients who regularly attend support groups take off more weight and keep it off better than patients who do not.
Seminars are held from 5:30-7 p.m. the third Thursday of each month in the Natividad Conference Room (behind the gift shop) at the hospital. The meeting will provide basic information about weight-loss surgery and describe next steps in pursuing weight-loss surgery.

• Apr 19
• May 17
• Jun 21
• Jul 19
