A Surgical Weight Loss Support Group has started meeting in the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Conference Room on the second Tuesday and third Thursday of each month from 6-7 p.m. The support group is for patients who have had surgical weight loss procedures or are preparing for surgery. The group was created to help patients with the emotional impact of the weight loss and the lifestyle changes that are made. There will be guest speakers, educational classes, specialists, etc. at the meetings for the group. No officers, no dues or fees to belong. Please join us and reap the benefits of having someone to share your challenges, emotions and fears from those who have experienced this life style changing event. For more information, contact Cheryl Pickett at 803-635-7817.
