Weight Loss Support Group
North Mississippi Medical Center's Weight Loss Support Group meets ONLINE at 6 p.m. the first Thursday of each month.
Support group meetings are free, and participants may call (662) 377-SLIM (377-7546) or 1-866-908-9465 for more information.
The group provides education and emotional support for patients who are considering or have had bariatric surgery. Attendance at one Weight Loss Support Group meeting is required prior to bariatric surgery.
Weight Loss Support Group meetings are also available to watch "live" online by clicking the link below each month's topic. Unfortunately, once the meeting has ended, it is no longer available to watch.
