Support Groups

St. Vincent’s East WLS Support group is a Birmingham, Alabama based support group for those considering Weight Loss Surgery and those who have already had Weight Loss Surgery.

We are a non-surgeon specific support group, and the support groups are led by our bariatric coordinator, who has had weight loss surgery herself.
