Bariatrics

Online resources to support bariatric patients

Introduction

42.4% of Americans suffer from obesity, the leading cause of preventable, premature death and serious medical conditions worldwide (CDC 2020). As individuals struggle to manage obesity through costly and often ineffective means, bariatric surgery has emerged in recent decades as one of the few scientifically proven successful treatments for obesity. Our nonprofit seeks to address heath disparities and increase access to healthcare through education.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically decreased the availability and accessibility of vital in-person resources, aggressively widening healthcare disparities. In the current climate, those interested in learning more about bariatric surgery frequently have no alternative means of obtaining this critical information. Our free, online education can be the leading resource for the over 40% of Americans who suffer from obesity (CDC 2020) and their friends and family who are seeking to understand more about bariatric surgery.
