On Sunday afternoon, a group of men and women joined in a celebration after several years of effort and commitment. Their common link: weight loss. The Bariatric Weight Loss Center at Northeast Georgia Medical Center welcomed back former patients and their families and friends, as well as doctors and nurses who took care of them, for “Celebrate You,” a weight loss surgery patient achievement event, at the Gainesville Civic Center.
