We’ve been highlighting the great work our partners in this year’s Health Activist Awards. Today, we’re focusing on United Ostomy Associations of America.
United Ostomy Associations of America, Inc. is a national network for bowel and urinary diversion support groups. UOAA unifies these many groups and offers many patient support services. One outstanding program UOAA has developed is Ostomy Awareness Day. The Association declared October 4, 2014 as Ostomy Awareness Day in an attempt to heighten awareness and share ostomy stories.
