Classes & Support

Learning a healthy lifestyle shouldn't just be about stepping on the scale.

Sometimes you need that extra motivation to develop a healthier life. Whether it's experimenting with a new fitness routine or sampling new foods, a little change can do you good.

The Franciscan Midwest Bariatric Institute offers programs to help support you in your quest for a healthier life, including:
