Supporting Patients and FamiliesHand holds another hand

Winchester Hospital offers a variety of free support groups to help our patients and families.

Virtual Weight Loss Support Group

Losing weight and keeping it off is difficult to accomplish alone. Join experts from the Winchester Hospital Weight Management Program for a virtual support group to learn strategies for successful weight loss and maintenance.

Topics include medications for weight loss after surgery, weight loss surgery, meal preparation and more.

Sessions are held monthly on the third Wednesday of the month from 5:00 to 6:00 pm and are presented live on Google Meet. For more information and to join a session, call 781-756-6760 or email us.

If you do not have a weight loss doctor, we can help you find a doctor who specializes in medical weight loss or surgical weight loss.
