Welcome to St. Paul Ostomy Association's web site! We are the place to go when you NEED support; but if you don't need support, it is the place to go to GIVE support.
The St. Paul Ostomy Association is affiliated with the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA). Information from the national organization can be obtained at www.ostomy.org
The following information concerning Medicare's Competitive Bidding appears on the UOAA website, www.ostomy.org. UOAA is asking for personal stories concerning challenges patients believe they will experience accessing/obtaining their necessary supplies if ostomy & urological supplies are included in Medicare Competitive Bidding. Please participate in helping UOAA's advocacy efforts.
[Meeting Cancellation] - Our Board of Directors has determined that due to dangerous weather and driving conditions expected to affect the Twin Cities this weekend our potluck meeting scheduled for tomorrow, 12/17, must be canceled. We encourage everyone to stay indoors, and if snow shoveling must be done, please use caution to stay safe.
The St. Paul Ostomy Association (SPOA) is a volunteer-based health organization dedicated to providing education, information, support and advocacy for people who have had or will have intestinal or urinary diversions.
The SPOA meets on the third Saturday of the month at a convenient location.
We dedicate a large portion of our meetings to "rap" sessions, when our members and visitors discuss current ostomy issues, share health questions and discoveries, and gain insight on ostomy care. Most important: we have fun! We welcome all ostomates and their family and friends to participate. Come join us!
