For the past eight years fellow weight loss surgery patients have volunteered their time and talents to create the annual WLSFA event. It started as a “Meet & Greet” of fellow Youtube vloggers and has grown into a world class bariatric patient conference however it is much more than a conference. The WLSFA event is a Fundraiser.  As you you plan and choose what obesity related events to attend, please remember the WLSFA is much more than an event. Why? Because of YOU, when you attend you make a difference, you save lives, you are paying it forward, we are saving lives one grant at a time! The world is not full of compassion for people affected by morbid obesity. We fellow WLS patients understand, we care and we know weight loss surgery saves lives.  Please join us June 1-3 in San Antonio Texas.
Watch our video “WLSFA is more than…”

The WLSFA mission is to:

Improve the lives of the all people affected morbid obesity and to fund grants for bariatric and reconstructive surgery for post operative bariatric patients.

  • WLSFA events fulfill our mission by providing a conference that enriches the lives of the bariatric patients while raising funds for the grants we award each year.
  • The WLSFA is the only 100% Volunteer charity serving the needs of people affected by morbid obesity. There are no paid executives or staff.
  • The WLSFA was created by bariatric patients to help other bariatric patients. The board of directors are all bariatric patient volunteers.

Please attend our event June 1-3 in San Antonio Texas.  Hosted at the beautiful Marriott Riverwalk Hotel. Expect three days of fun activities, learning experiences and memories to last a lifetime.  Go home knowing you helped save a life one grant at a time!
