Hello, we are BariNation, a community of like-minded bariatric patients seeking the support, education, and experiences we need to find and maintain our happy, healthy weight before and after bariatric surgery. As patients, we were frustrated with the support we were offered, so we created exactly what we needed to succeed. By creating BariNation, we have found a new, loving family, our "BariFam"!
We create intentional, safe spaces for members to do the work of weight loss surgery, guided by experts in the bariatric field.
We are excited to welcome you into the BariNation Membership Community and support you every step. No matter your age or your stage, you belong in BariNation!
April, Jason, and Natalie
