Memphis Area Ostomy Group
Memphis, TN—Ostomy Support Group
We are an affiliate of the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) and are one of hundreds of ostomy support groups in the U.S. We are a volunteer, non-profit group who hopes through our meetings to promote a better understanding of ostomies, be of mutual assistance to each other and, where possible, to render support to the medical and nursing profession.
Personal interaction and insight to an individual’s situation can often provide clearer information and in most cases is a more comforting experience than reading an internet screen. We’ve all been there. We accept donated supplies for distribution to those in need.
Any individual who has an ileostomy, ileal conduit, colostomy or other ostomy type is encouraged to become an active member. Family members and caregivers are also welcome.
3rd Sunday of ODD months: January, March, May, July, September, November
Reminder emails will be sent in advance of the meetings.
