We established the Augusta Bariatric Coalition in 2010 as a memeber of the National Legagcy Foundation, a 501(3)(c) organization, for the purpose of raising awareness about the need for comprehensive weightloss solutions for members of our community.  The organzation sponors events to raise this awarness and also performs fundraising events to assist patients in finding the necessary resources to loose weight and lead a healthy lifestyle.
