Support Group Schedules, Topics and Locations
We have support groups throughout the month located in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Please feel free to attend as many as you would like a month. Support group attendance helps to motivate weight loss and support maintenance of the weight you have already lost.
Please make sure to check the website for updates. We will be sending out notifications of time, place and weather cancellations via the website.
