Lose weight, gain a new life

Clark Memorial Hospital Bariatric Weight Loss Program is hosting a free weight loss seminar on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the Kathryn Raines Education and Conference Center in the hospital, 1220 Missouri Ave., Jeffersonville.

Dr. Daniel MacMillan and Dr. Patri Marconi, of Surgical Associates Southern Indiana, will present information on obesity and the laparoscopic weight loss procedure offered at Clark Memorial Hospital. Carolyn McKee, RN, bariatric coordinator will talk about how a comprehensive post-procedure follow-up program benefits weight loss patients and she will go over basic insurance information and guidelines.
