In this episode, Janine speaks with Mili Metz, a former bariatric support group leader. In their conversation, Mili discusses the importance of support groups for bariatric patients and how a support group can help a patient to succeed in their bariatric journey. The journey is easier when we travel together! Here’s a brief overview of the topics we discuss:
Mili has her own podcast, Ask an American, where she interviews people, just like you, to explore diversity and opportunities for collaboration in America today. Her organization is The Swell Collective, an “unconventional nonprofit organization” that focuses on “intersectional needs & strengths of marginalized communities” as well as “themes of ethical collaboration, effective communication, and resiliency & wellness.” You can find out more about The Swell Collective on their website, https://swellcollective.org/.
