Physicians, patients to reconnect at Good Samaritan Hospital’s bariatric reunion

DOWNERS GROVE – Past and current bariatric surgery patients will share their experiences and lifestyle changes at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital’s 5th annual Bariatric Reunion on July 23.

“The annual bariatric reunion is a chance for people who’ve undergone bariatric surgery to reunite with other patients and members of their care team from the hospital,” said Dr. Jeffrey Rosen, medical director of bariatric surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital. “It’s a very emotional event as we reflect on how many lives have changed and how many have achieved better health.”

Hospital staff, physicians and LifeWeigh Bariatrics staff also will attend the reunion, which is scheduled from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. July 23 in the Oak Rooms at the hospital, 3815 Highland Ave.
