Connections Support Group

Make a Social Support Connection

The “Connections” Support Group at Iowa Weight Loss Specialists offers a valuable virtual gathering once a month. It is designed for individuals seeking answers, solutions, and a sense of community. The Iowa Weight Loss Clinic's supportive and collaborative group provides a unique opportunity for patients to connect with one another. Facilitated by both a dietitian and a therapist, these sessions aim to address common concerns, offer support, and foster a sense of unity.

Participation in group meetings is flexible, allowing individuals to engage at their own comfort level. Whether you prefer to actively share or quietly listen, the environment is a judgment-free zone. Your well-being is prioritized, and there’s no obligation to use your camera if it doesn’t align with your comfort level. This virtual forum goes beyond a simple health information exchange about diet and exercise or weight loss surgery--it cultivates a space where shared experiences and collective insights contribute to a stronger, more connected community. By joining these sessions, you not only gain access to valuable knowledge of healthy lifestyles but also become part of a supportive network dedicated to your weight loss journey. Embrace the chance to connect, learn, and thrive together with our community health connection.

Rules for Zoom calls:

  • When joining the Zoom call, 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.
  • Ensure your audio and video settings are functioning correctly before the meeting starts.
