Support Group Videos
Your new life is busy enough, so instead of asking you to take time out of your busy schedule to attend a support group meeting at our offices, we are bringing them to you. A new video is posted here and on our Facebook page the first Monday of every month. The videos, hosted by one of our Doctors, Clinic Staff, Dietitian and/or Workout Coaches, cover a number of topics germane to our patient’s journey. You can join the discussions on our Facebook page, website, or e-mail the video host with any questions you have relating to the video topic for the week following it’s posting.
