United Ostomy Associations of America
United Ostomy Associations of America is here for you!
We never imagined we'd "see" you virtually!
United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) is your partner for improving patient outcomes through education, advocacy, and support.
As the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to the improvement of the quality of life for people who have or will have an intestinal or urinary diversion, we are the trusted go-to source for clinician and patient educational and advocacy resources. Our website (ostomy.org) is an excellent resource for you and your patients for the latest ostomy information and tools.
UOAA also now offers a special Medical Professional National Membership. With your membership you would receive special recognition in the Phoenix magazine, voting rights, national membership pin and stoma pin and more. Learn more here.
In addition, people who have or will have surgery, caregivers, family, friends and medical professionals can benefit from lifelong learning and emotional support through our association of over 300 affiliated, nonprofit, support groups.
Thank you for your dedication and commitment to ostomy care, education, and research on behalf of our community!
