Donations and Book for a Buck
The purpose of the Patient Reunion is to empower you to stay engaged in your long-term aftercare.
During the past reunions, we have had many wonderful raffle items donated by participants for door prizes. If you can provide a gift for the raffle, please contact Marilyn Wadum at or 402-219-7600.
In addition, we are going to have a "Book for a Buck" table. We encourage you to bring a few gently used books that you have found helpful in your weight-loss  journey that someone else may enjoy reading.
We hope to see you at the Reunion!
