Meeting change for Lakewood's Gastric Bypass Support Group

The Gastric Bypass Support group offered by Lakewood Health System will not be meeting on their regularly scheduled days during the months of October, November and December. They will instead be meeting with Lakewood's PACT (Pursuing Active Change Together) class during those months. The first meeting is scheduled for Oct. 20 from 2-3 p.m. in the lower level classrooms at Lakewood's Main Campus.

The two groups will meet together to begin the meeting and the last 20 minutes will be spent breaking into smaller support groups. This joint group is open to anyone who has had gastric bypass surgery or is considering surgery, and those interested in receiving education, tips and resources to help promote healthy lifestyle choices and disease prevention.

Physician referral is not necessary to attend the class but pre-registration is required to reserve your seat for the PACT portion of the meeting. To register, call Lisa at (218) 894-8623. For more information, please contact Jena Doemel, RD, LD at (218) 894-8509.
