Thank you for being a UOAA Affiliated Support Group. Our support groups embody our vision of having a society where people with intestinal or urinary diversions are universally accepted and supported socially, economically, medically and psychologically.

ASG in a Box
To provide guidance and assist ASG leaders with facilitating their support group, UOAA has developed a comprehensive manual titled “ASG In A Box.” The information provided in this manual extends from starting a group, topics for meetings including educational webinars, creating a website and social media presence, newsletter templates and much more.
This manual is a benefit of your affiliation with UOAA and is password protected. Please contact the UOAA national office at email@example.com or 800-826-0826 to obtain your password.
