Welcome to UNJURY® Cares, a resource for all your bariatric needs. This is a place to learn, explore, connect, and find tools to help you succeed in meeting all your health goals.

Clearly, patients recognize how much UNJURY Cares.  They might not know how passionately our founder, Martha Krachenfels MS RD cared about patients….since she was a “candy-striper” at age 16.  Here’s Our Story.

The Bariatric Academy™

The Bariatric Academy™ provides great speakers, sound advice and a supportive environment for all bariatric.  Two support groups levels provide excellent pre-op and post-op support and education as a complement your clinic’s educational program. 

The meetings are always FREE for patients.
