Dr. Steve as the 2024 Bariatric Connect Conference Emcee

Having previously emceed the ObesityHelp Conferences in 2019 and 2023, we are honored to have Dr. Steve back as the 2024 Bariatric Connect Conference emcee. As always, he will bring his infectious energy, sense of humor, and dynamic ability to motivate and engage conference attendees, speakers, and professionals.

“The conference is an amazing event that affords people the opportunity to get a boost of motivation, progress in their personal growth, and solidify so many things needed for living a life of self-care. It is here that people can access professionals who truly understand the factors that affect one’s well-being and access like-minded people who want to expand their support network through the weight loss surgery community. It is a nutrient-dense source of education and is a support-rich environment for genuine connection. Historically, we have always created lasting memories from the workshops, presentations, and great social events! I feel that attending the Bariatric Connect conference is the very definition of self-investment. And probably the greatest benefit for anyone attending is that you realize you’re not alone in your health journey. We are truly in this together! I am ecstatic about being a part of 2024 Bariatric Connect Conference!” -  Dr. Steve

In addition to being the 2024 Bariatric Connect Conference emcee, Dr. Steve will host an enlightening workshop discussion and Fireside Chat! Don’t miss your chance to join him in his workshop, Your Mind is Not Your Mirror: Tools for a Healthy Body Image, on Friday, September 20th, & Saturday, September 21st, at 2:15 pm!

Knowing Dr. Reyes for well over ten years, I can honestly say that he is one of the biggest reasons that I am such an advocate for mental health care. He assisted me during one of the most confusing times of my life while I was undergoing a revision from a lap-band to a gastric bypass. He always allows you to feel comfortable and confident with whatever you are talking to him about. Whether you are in a one-on-one setting or a group setting, he is relatable with his feedback. He could potentially moonlight as a comedian, but there are always different ways that Dr. Reyes is trying to allow us to have humor in whatever we are talking about. And laughter is always the best medicine, but so is relatability. He always finds ways to let us know that we are not alone. Lauren Sanchez, WLS-Post-Op & Bariatric Connect Co-Host
