OstomyConnection began with a question. What if there was a collective website for ostomates? One convenient place where everyone can stay connected to news, events and happenings in the ostomy community. Which led to wanting to do something significant for some very special “mates”… which led to meeting a team of extremely talented, creative and just plain nice people who make the whole thing work.
We’re bringing together leaders in the industry, health and wellness experts, doctors, nurses, and advocates so you can have access to the most in-the-know content. Ostomates from around the world are sharing firsthand experiences on the blog, because learning from others can be the best source of help.
We understand there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to living with an ostomy. After all, you know best what works for you. But when you’re in an exclusive “poo-pee” club like ours, staying connected is important, and that’s why we’re here for you.
On OstomyConnection, the ever-evolving intent is to help ostomates stay connected to the stories and topics that affect their daily lives. Our goal is to connect everything ostomy into one convenient place – a hub for ostomates!
