Ostomy 101 Classes

Live - Virtual

  Non-medical lifestyle classes  facilitated at no cost by person living with an ostomy & collaborated by a WOC Nurse.

Classes cover pouching options, accessories, what to expect in the first 3 months, bathing, swimming, sleeping, wardrobe, exercise, travel, work and more! 


You will have the opportunity to ask questions, but it's okay if you wish to remain quiet.  This is a private, password protected class for people living with an ostomy and their family members and caregivers. 

Ostomy 101 classes are nonprofit & vendor neutral
