AMERICUS, GA -- May 31, 2013 — More than 30 people were on hand for the first weight loss surgery seminar that was conducted by Phoebe Sumter Medical Center and Phoebe Sumter Surgical Associates.

The participants got an introduction to bariatric surgery, what it entails and who is eligible for the program. Speakers included Program Directors Dr. Jeremy Joyner and Dr. Sean Sheff, who both served a Surgical Fellowship in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. Also on hand was the Bariatric Program Coordinator, Misty Willis, FNP-BC, who captured the audience’s attention on a different level by being able to empathize with them and sharing her weight loss surgery testimony. “It is not a walk in the park, but I am living proof that is doable,” said Willis.

If you would like more information about upcoming seminars or about the program, please contact Willis at (229) 931-1152 or via e-mail at mfwillis@phoebesumter.org.
