Ever wonder how age, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or socioeconomic status impact the #ostomy experience?

With this year’s #WorldOstomyDay focused on #ostomate rights being #humanrights, Girls With Guts (GWG) and UOAA have teamed up to explore this question and more as we host a chat on the intersectional aspects of living with #IBD and an ostomy.

Join us on Monday, September 27th from 8-9pm EST / 5-6pm PST when UOAA Patient Advisor & GWG Community Connection Liaison, Tina Aswani-Omprakash (South Asian Crohn’s & ostomy advocate), will host Jenice Diaz (Afro/Indo Latina Crohn’s & ostomy advocate), Jeanne Dagna (#LGBTQ Crohn’s & ostomy advocate), and Diana Boogaard (Vietnamese #IBDMom and UC, #jpouch & ostomy advocate)!

Whether you are new to the community or have been living with an ostomy and/or IBD for years, this is a powerful conversation you won’t want to miss! Join us on FB LIVE on www.facebook.com/ibdgirls or www.facebook.com/UOAAinc!
