Hey everyone! I'm trying to get the word out on a support group that has been going in Sacramento for quite sometime and yet most people still haven't heard about us. So here I go!

We meet every Monday night - except Holidays from 7 - 8:30PM
Location: South Sacramento Kaiser Medical Office Building
7300 Wyndham Drive, Sacramento, CA 95823
Second Floor Room 3

I personally am one of the co-moderators of the group. We are a patient based support group - which basically means I am just like you and everyone else; a patient. I have some training in running support groups and have additional resources that I can turn to. However, we are not educational based such as some of the groups that are run by the bariatric programs themselves.

If you have any questions you can feel free to email me at [email protected]. Or you are more then welcome to just show up one Monday night and join us! We share lots of laughter and lots of information on this journey we are all on together.

Love to see you! ----Juli

Is this still going on? I looked on Kaiser's website and they have a group every fourth Tuesday from 5-6:30 but this would work out better for me?  Any info?

This sounds great -- I responded to you on this subject on another thread, Spumoni, before seeing this. I've also sent an email to Baluroses. I'm more in the College Green area right now but am moving south at the beginning of May, so this would be perfect for me, if you all are still meeting.
