Welcome to our website! The Beaumont Support Group is affiliated with UOAA – United Ostomy Associations of America. The largest cities served by this support group are Beaumont, Port Arthur and Orange, but our area also includes numerous smaller municipalities.
We currently meet the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at the Wilton P. Herbert Wellness Center, 3030 North Street, Beaumont, TX 77702 (map).
Our main focus is to help each other with any appliance problem as well as be an informational source for persons anticipating ostomy surgery. We frequently have professional speakers, as well as, at least annually, representatives from different vendors who bring samples of their new products and talk with us about what is happening in their business world. Members of our group receive a monthly reminder of the meetings. This reminder frequently includes helpful hints to make the ostomate’s life better.
The Beaumont Support Group is here to help you connect with other people. We invite you to join us.
