Bariatric Support Groups

Triangle Area Support Group

WakeMed Bariatric Support Group

We invite you to attend the monthly support group, held the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the WakeMed Cary Conference Center, unless otherwise noted. Through our meetings, we hope you will learn valuable information, receive encouragement, friendship and support. Not only will you meet other patients at different points along their journey, we hope you find a place where you feel comfortable sharing your experiences.
