Bariatric Surgery Support Groups

These groups provide ongoing support and information for Kaiser Permanente members who have been approved for bariatric surgery and for those who have had the weight-loss surgery.

You must be a Kaiser Permanente 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.
