NorthFloridaWLSSupport's moderator lives in a
Jacksonville, Florida suburb
however, we have members south to Daytona Beach, west to Panama City, FL
north to Brunswick, GA.
|Because we cover so many cities,
we rotate our meetings around the northeast area of the state. Our members
volunteer to hostess our meetings or a member volunteer arranges for us to
meet at a restaurant. We have speakers on occasion (depending on how many
members will be attending). We meet the
third Saturday of each month in the afternoon. We also have a fancy dress
Xmas Party each year.
I am an RN and I provide some of the speaking depending on topics
or suggested. We have a monthly clothing exchange and our meetings often
include a low fat, low crab, no sugar meal with everyone bringing a dish
|Dr. Barry Haicken
has a support meeting the 2nd Saturday of every month from 10-12noon with
an optional extra hour (until 1). It's held at Morton Plant Mease
Hospital in Clearwater, FL. It's on the 1st floor Tuttle room.
Although most people are patients of Dr. Barry Haicken, there have been
people with different types of WLS and different dr's, that have attended,
so it's open to all. It's extremely fun and informative. It's
mostly post-ops presenting their stories---and addressing any questions
