“Making the choice to get healthy is a lifestyle commitment and we want people to know that they don’t have to do it alone. The DMC and MWLC are here to help and support them on their journey,” said Michael Wood, Medical Director of the DMC’s Bariatric Surgery program. “This free event will give people a chance to meet with experts, learn about their options, both surgical and non-surgical weight management, and see firsthand real people who have had success.”

DMC surgeons perform weight-loss procedures – bariatric surgery – on men and women who are at least 100 pounds overweight, suffer from related health conditions and have unsuccessfully tried other weight-loss methods. DMC bariatric surgeons use many different surgical techniques to help morbidly obese patients lose weight, regain health and take control of their lives.

“We understand how overwhelming it can feel to need and want to lose a significant amount of weight, and that’s why MWLC and DMC are working together, and hosting this free event,” said David Paull, president of MWLC. “People need guidance, support, information and options, and this event is designed to provide all of those things in one place. We want to set people up for weight-loss success and a lifetime of wellness, and it can all start for them on September 27th.”
