Bariatric Community Collaboration: Kentucky Bariatric Institute and BariNation

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our collaboration between BariNation and Kentucky Bariatric Institute has officially launched today, September 6th!

As we reflect on the journey that has brought us here, it's impossible not to be amazed by the milestones we've already reached together. From the initial conversations to the collaborative brainstorming sessions, announcing at ASMBS  and all the way through to this moment, every step has been marked by a spirit of innovation, dedication, and mutual respect.

Our collaboration has not only brought about remarkable growth and learning, but it has also demonstrated the power of synergy when two bariatric organizations come together with a common goal.

The commitment and hard work from both teams have truly been the driving force behind this joint effort, and it's a testament to the excellent alignment between our core values and objectives.

We believe that the impact of our collaboration will be felt not only within our respective operations but also within the bariatric community as a whole. 

What to Expect from Barination and Kentucky Bariatric Institute?

What can both of our communities expect from this new venture? Increased virtual support through live events with bariatric surgeon Eric Smith alongside our vetted hosts, a new community of bariatric patients to bring forth new perspectives and questions, and an overall sense of growth and community.

As we move forward, we are incredibly excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. With the strong foundation we've built, we have no doubt that this community will continue to thrive, bringing forth even more innovative solutions and accomplishments that will shape the future of bariatric medicine.
