Support Groups


Ostomy Support Group

The Ostomy Support Group provides fellowship among people who share a common experience. At each month’s meeting, we cover a variety of topics, and have a wound ostomy nurse present to answer any questions you have about your ostomy. The meetings are open to all ostomates in our community and their families and friends.

Meetings are held at 3 p.m., the last Thursday of each month in the Education Classroom. For more information, call Wound and Ostomy Center at 618-391-5941.
