Ostomy Support Group
We welcome you to attend our Ostomy Support Group! As an affiliated support group of the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA), our Ostomy Support Group seeks to provide a supportive, confidential place for ostomates, caregivers, family, and friends to give and receive support facing life prior to and after colostomy, urostomy, or ileostomy surgery, as well as continent diversions. We hope to promote wellness by providing peer support and socialization through helping members identify and solve problems with guidance from ostomates, ostomy clinicians, and locate local resources. Guest speakers will also present based upon interests expressed by group members.
