Information Sessions

Take the First Step Toward Weight Loss Success with a Free Information Session

Bariatric Nurses

Our bariatric nurse coordinators had weight loss surgery, so they can help you achieve success too.

University Hospitals Digestive Health Institute’s Nutritional Health & Bariatric Surgery Center offers free information sessions, both online and in person, for anyone seeking successful weight loss management.
