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, for your own review and to share with other professionals and patients:

The right Supplements for your needs

Healthy Aging

To maintain vitality as we age, we need more high-quality protein. Medical research says that over the age of 40, we need 30 grams of high-quality protein, three times a day. You get more of the highest quality protein with UNJURY®. You also get far lower carb, fat, sugar and calories than in the heavily advertised flagship nutrition drinks you see on TV.
