London, Ky.

Those suffering from unhealthy, excess weight are invited to attend and learn about the unique benefits of weight loss surgery. Kentucky’s adult obesity rate is the eighth highest in the nation, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those suffering from obesity or unhealthy weight may qualify for weight loss surgery, which can dramatically improve overall health by reducing joint pain and high cholesterol, lowering blood pressure levels and more.

Attendees will learn how procedures such as gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy are performed, and the results that are typically seen, along with simple dietary and lifestyle changes that can help to achieve lasting success.
