HMHP Hosts Product Fair for Ostomy Patients

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

A product fair featuring companies that specialize in medical supplies for ostomy patients is slated for 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 14 at HM Home Care, 979 Tibbetts-Wick Road, Girard.

Convatec, Hollister and Coloplast are among the companies that will be represented during the fair, which takes place during the monthly meeting of the Youngstown Area Ostomy Support Group.

The Youngstown Area Ostomy Support Group provides ostomy patients and their families and friends the opportunity to share experiences while receiving ongoing education and information.

Ostomies – surgically created openings that provide for the elimination of wastes from the body – are very common. Close to a million people in the United States, thousands in the Youngstown-Warren area alone, have ostomies, reports Anna Fitzgerald, enterostomal therapy nurse and founder of the Youngstown Area Ostomy Support Group. Ostomies are often required by patients suffering from ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, cancer, diverticulitis or colitis.

Meetings of the Youngstown Area Ostomy Support Group take place the second Tuesday of each month with meeting places alternating between Humility of Mary Health Partners’ HM Home Care office in Girard and St. Elizabeth Boardman Health Center. Meetings are open to the public, refreshments are provided and parking is free.

The Youngstown Area Ostomy Support Group is a member of the United Ostomy Association of America Inc. (UOAA), a national network for bowel and urinary diversion support groups in the United States.

For information, call 330.480.3440.
