Mercy Philadelphia Hospital Announces Addition of Bariatric Support Group and Exercise Classes to Bariatric Program Services

Mercy Philadelphia Hospital will soon be offering Bariatric Support Groups and Exercise Classes as part of the Mercy Bariatrics Program, beginning Tuesday, May 14, 2013.

The Bariatric Support Group and Exercise classes will take place every second and fourth Tuesday of the month. The Bariatric Support Group offers extra support, weight-management education and advice, and will also feature nutrition education taught by a certified bariatric nutritionist.

The bariatric exercise class is specifically designed for those seeking to lose significant weight without bariatric surgery, for those who are preparing for surgery or for those who have already undergone bariatric surgery.

Both sessions will be held at Mercy Philadelphia Hospital, in room 239. The support group will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., followed by the exercise class taking place from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
