Bariatric Surgery Support Groups
These groups provide ongoing support and information for Group Health members who have been approved for bariatric surgery and for those who have had the weight-loss surgery.
You must be a Group Health member to attend; there is no fee. Groups are open to all past and approved bariatric patients, unless otherwise noted.
If you want program information or help finding a group, call Julie Grimm, RN, at 425-502-3454.
