Bariatric Weight Loss Support Group and Nutrition Classes

Bariatric weight loss surgery can be an intimidating topic but NEA Baptist is here as your resource for encouragement and support whether you are just beginning your weight loss journey or you are maintaining your weight loss program.

The bariatric support group meets on the first Tuesday of each month and the Nutrition Class meets the second Thursday of each month.  Both classes start at 6:00 pm in the NEA Baptist medical campus conference center room 4, located at 4800 E. Johnson Ave. in Jonesboro.

NEA Baptist established a monthly support group with peers of bariatric surgery for education, encouragement, and socialization. This group is open to anyone who is interested in discussing their weight loss, those who would like to gather information about an approaching surgery or anyone seeking out information, recipes and tips to help aid in their weight loss course. No topic is off limits.

The event is completely free and open to anyone, regardless of where they receive healthcare. Reservations and appointments are not required.  For additional information email or call 870-936-2019.
