This regional event will be presented by the CHI St. Joseph’s Health Weight Management   Center and Essentia Health Park Rapids Clinic team.

A weight-loss surgeon and Weight Management Center staff will explain surgical and other innovative options that are available and answer questions about anyone’s weight-loss goals.
