Surgical Weight Loss Program to hold Fall Social, Drop Your Drawers event

The Penn State Hershey Surgical Weight Loss Program will host its annual Fall Social from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, at the 4000 Vine St. location in Middletown, Pa. Patients and guests will enjoy an evening celebrating the life-changing outcomes that surgical weight loss procedures can help to facilitate.

Each year patients participate in the Drop Your Drawers portion of this event. Post-op surgical weight loss patients parade in pre-surgery clothing and reveal their newfound healthy bodies by "dropping their drawers." This year 13 Drop Your Drawers participants will celebrate their collective loss of nearly 2,000 pounds. It is a very emotional and inspirational event.

Join the Penn State Hershey Surgical Weight Loss staff and patients at the Fall Social to learn more about surgical weight loss as an option. Meet some of the post-op patients as they share their stories, strut their stuff and celebrate their weight loss journeys after surgical weight loss. Email surgicalweightloss@hmc.psu.edu to RSVP.
