Patients and those considering surgery are welcome to attend our support group meetings, guest speakers, and seminars. Our groups are moderated by healthcare professionals.

You may attend one “Support Group” meeting each month, but not both. This does not apply to "Special Guest Speakers" or “Seminars” - you may attend all. Please join us! (Don’t forget to check your spam after registering if you do not receive the zoom response with the meeting ID & password)
