Bariatric support group offered

Tuesday, August 31, 2004

Contrary to information given The Times in a report titled "Surgery patients hope for support group" in Friday's newspaper, there is a Clay County support group, The Times has learned.

The group was formed on Dec. 15. It is made up of people from Clinton, Rosedale, Reelsville, Terre Haute and Brazil who have undergone bariatric bypass weight loss surgery.

The group meets to discuss such issues as, "Is weight loss surgery right for me?", how to find a surgeon, Internet sites on the subject, insurance issues and recipes for weight loss surgery patients.

The group meets every fourth Monday of the month in the St. Vincent Clay Hospital cafeteria, 7-8 p.m.

Fore more information, call Renee McLaury, (812) 446-0100.
