The Bariatric Academy ™ LIFELONG SUCCESS Group is for patients who are more than 1-year Post-Op
We have a mix of outstanding professionals and patients who share inspiring life stories. For example, on 12/30/2020, we were honored to present Dr. Paul Davidson, psychologist at Brigham and Womens’ Hospital and Harvard, talking about Self Esteem and Confidence going into the new year. It is a classic that we believe every bariatric patient should see! Here is the link.
