Support Group Schedules, Topics and Locations

The In-Person Bariatric Support Groups have been suspended at this time.  Per NYU Langone Health Systems precautions, we wish to avoid large congregations of patients together when remote access is available.

At the present time, online support group meetings for pre- and post-ops are on Monday evenings from 6-8pm.

  • 6-7 pm– pre- and post-op
  • 7-8 pm– post-op only

Patients can send an email to Elizabeth.Carruthers@NYULangone.org and they will be connected to the support group email invitation.

If you would like to be added to the nutrition classes please send an email to Karen.norowski@nyulangone.org and you will be added on the class invite.

There are some helpful online support groups that you can utilize while we are on hold.  Obesity Help is a great and very useful tool.

Support groups are extremely important and if you need assistance please do not hesitate to call the office.

Please continually check the website to see when the Support Groups, Pre-op Educational class, and Post-op Nutrition classes will resume.

This is not due to any threat, only due to an abundance of caution.

Thank you for your cooperation!
