Bariatric, Foregut, and Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery Division Community Service

The Division participates in a number of outreach programs in education for the community and medical professionals on evidence-based practice and new technology that is on the horizon.

Our faculty provides free public seminars on bariatric and metabolic weight loss, on the first and third Monday of every month, from 5 to 7 pm, at Stony Brook University Hospital. For more information and/or to register, please call 631-444-4000.
