Patient Education and Support

Free Seminars

We invite you to attend one of our two monthly seminars to learn more about weight loss surgery options. Seminars are held two times each month at Yuma Regional Medical Center ADMINISTRATION Building, located off Avenue A, behind the parking garage.

  • 9:00 a.m. the first Friday of each month
  • 5:00 p.m. the third Tuesday of each month

Advance reservations are not required. We look forward to meeting you!

Support Groups

After attending a seminar, you may also find it helpful to attend one of our support group meetings where you can meet patients who have undergone the procedure and learn about their experiences. The support group is at 5 p.m., also on the third Tuesday of every month at the Yuma Regional Bariatric Surgery Clinic. Please remember to attend the information seminar the month before participating in the support group.
