Dear Friends & Family of LapSF and the Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii,

    As we soon say goodbye to Summer and welcome Fall, it is a good time for you to get back into work mode.  After a summer of leisure and fun, it may be beneficial to think about where your life is going and make goals on where you want it to be. Whether, you have fallen off your exercise program from traveling this summer and you want to begin again, or you have a goal of fitting in your leather skinny jeans that you recently purchased for fall (a real goal we heard from a patient this week!)- it is good to start making goals that you want to work on this season. As you form those goals, our team will be forming goals on how to make the patient experience even better and interactive!


As you will see from this newsletter, we have new projects forming and special events occurring that everyone can be excited about. If you ever have an idea on something we should do such as a special support group speaker or a new product in our E-store, do not hesitate to e-mail or call us with your ideas. We love hearing from you!

   Come Participate for a Good Cause!: ASMBS and OAC's "Walk from Obesity"


This year’s (first annual) Northern California Walk from Obesity event will take place on Saturday, September 1, 2012 at the Campbell Community Center Track. We invite you, your family, friends, and healthcare providers to join us in offering opportunities for both youth and adults to adopt and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Registration is only $25.00 online and $35.00 at the event; children under the age of 12 are FREE, with a paid parent or guardian.

All registrants will receive an official Walk from Obesity t-shirt and a free one year membership into the OAC. The walk is scheduled to kick off at 8:00am, and registration starts at 7:00am.


The ASMBS Foundation and Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) were created to give a voice to those affected by obesity. Both nonprofit organizations raise funds for conducting research and education, increasing public and scientific awareness and understanding, and improving access to quality care and treatment of obesity and morbid obesity.

The Walk from Obesity is the only event that brings together those who are directly affected by obesity. This year we are expecting about 100 individuals from the local community to attend the Walk as participants, volunteers and/or sponsors. Event details can be found online at For information on volunteering, donating and sponsorship please email us at You can also follow us on Twitter at
