*Reminder: Due to the content that is covered, the doors close on time and you will not be allowed in after the program has started. We recommend arriving 15 minutes early to allow time for parking and to find the room.
At the conclusion of the informational sessions, you will be required to complete an attendance verification if you are still interested in bariatric surgery. When you turn that form in you will receive an in-depth questionnaire to complete.
