Missouri Bariatric Services hosts a support group in Columbia, typically, on the first Monday of each month. E-mail announcements are sent monthly with the specific date and time of the support group. Presenters and topics rotate.

Support group is a great place to meet other people who have gone through weight loss surgery. Many benefit people benefit from attending support group. Support groups help them stay motivated and give them ideas on how to address a certain challenge they may be having. We look forward to seeing you!

How many of you find yourselves coming home tired from work or getting the kids from school feeling overwhelmed with the idea of planning and cooking a meal? Join us for this event where we are going to discuss ideas on how to put together a quick meal that is nutritious and delicious. This may also help you avoid the convenient fast food or other take-out meals that you may grab on your way home which are not healthy options.



After this support group, participants will be able to:

1. Identify the components of a nutritious meal.

2. Plan a list of staple foods to have on hand in the pantry.

3. Discover ways to put together foods and spices in a delicious way.

4. Find quick healthy meals on the internet.
