Support Group: 3rd Thursday and 2nd Tuesday Monthly at P/SL
As a patient of the Colorado Bariatric Surgery Institute (CBSI) you are invited to join our monthly bariatric surgery support groups. On the third Thursday of every month we offer a support group at P/SL hospital from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on the second Tuesday of every month we offer a support group at P/SL hospital from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. During the first hour of the support group we organize speakers to come and conduct classes that are of great importance to bariatric patients. Some of the past classes have included a chef making delicious meals that bariatric patients can eat, pilates instructors, plastic surgeons, and dining out classes. The second hour of the support group is an open forum that allows you to chat with other patients, deal with questions and issues you are all facing and talk to the nutritionist and nurse. It is such a great support for our patients because it allows for the building of new friendships and support systems with others in the same situation.
Support for the Supporters
This group is for the friends and family member of patients who may be seeking more information about what to expect and how to best support their loved ones.
Thursdays, 1:00 – 2:00–friends and family

Participation in CBSI Support Groups Encouraged
As a patient of CBSI we strongly encourage you to take advantage of all the great support systems we provide. Support groups are a valuable aid in learning and feeling comfortable with modifications in your daily diet and lifestyle. Talking and sharing with other patients helps you realize any limitations you may feel, and that these limitations likely pale in comparison to those experienced by the person who continues to be morbidly obese. Bring your family and friends as well, as support groups can be a great source of support and encouragement to them as they assist you in achieving your goals.
