Introduction to Connections Support Group

Posted on 03/02/2022 at 06:14 PM by Iowa Weight Loss Specialists

Iowa Weight Loss Specialists now has weekly support group meetings via zoom.  Our weekly support group meetings are called Connections.  Connections support groups are for all Iowa Weight Loss Specialists patients (medical and surgical weight loss).  Connections is a group that will meet virtually each week for one hour to answer questions, develop solutions to common concerns, and build community. Take advantage of an opportunity to connect with fellow patients in a supportive and collaborative group environment.  Connections support groups are moderated by the Bariatric Wellness Coach, a Registered Dietitian, and a Mental Health Specialist.

This group will meet via Zoom.  Once you have registered online, a link will be sent directly to your e-mail from the sign-up page. We encourage participants to engage as they feel comfortable; feel free to join and share, or just listen. This is a no-judgement zone, and you will not be required to use your camera if you do not feel comfortable.  

Rules for Zoom Calls:

  • When joining the Zoom call each week, please make sure to list your first name and last initial to ensure privacy among the group.

  • You will be muted upon entering to ensure adequate time for introductions, etc.

  • If you have questions or topics you would like to discuss, please send these in the chat feature as appropriate.
