Community Works

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


Our coalition consists of an advisory board that directs the activity of the coalition. The members are:

  • Mrs. Bryn Hamilton: Augusta Weight loss Support Group Leader, Chairman of the Board
  • Dr. Mike Blaney: Director, Trinity Bariatric Program
  • Dr. Darren Glass:  Surgeon, Live Healthy MD
  • Mr Chris Harrison: Owner, Chris Harrison Design, Board Treasurer.
  • Mr. Blane Bailey: CEO , Tranter Grey Media, Board Secretary
  • Dr. Eddie Cheeks: President, National Legacy Foundation

Current Events that the Augusta Bariatric Coalition is currently supporting include:

  • National Walk from Obesity
  • Yearly Augusta Bariatric Ball
