Nutrition Support Group

This support group meets once a month to provide support for people who want to lose weight before their transplant surgery.

These meetings are in a small group format and are usually held on the 4th Thursday of the month, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the GW Transplant Institute

All are welcome to this judgement free zone, and people who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or greater and/or a waist circumference of 40 inches or greater are encouraged to come. Each meeting starts with a nutrition topic presentation followed by a group discussion. Topics are related to good nutrition habits you can practice throughout your whole life.

Please contact Carolyn Feibig, the GW Transplant Institute Dietitian, if you would like to come to a class.

She can be reached via email at or you may call the GW Transplant Institute at 202-715-4225. 

Please make sure to check the date and time of the class this month as they may be subject to change.
