Who we are:
We are a volunteer association dedicated to the support of ostomates and their families.
What we do:
Our meetings provide much needed information to new and future ostomates while providing support for post-operative members and families. We offer ostomy care information through guest speakers, supplier representatives and round table discussions. Additionally, Wound Care Nurses attend meetings to provide technical support and care advice.
Our membership dues are $15 yearly which includes our newsletter, access to our free appliance and supplies inventory and information table.
