Ostomy Awareness Day
October 7 is Ostomy Awareness Day. This year’s theme is Navigate the Journey Together. You are not alone as you navigate through your journey of living with an ostomy or continent diversion.
National Ostomy Awareness Day began in 2010. It is held annually on the first Saturday of October. UOAA continues to celebrate this day by spreading awareness and increasing national visibility of those living with ostomies.
