Ostomy & J-Pouch Support Group

May 31, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm MDT

Calgary Ostomy J-Pouch Hybrid Support Group

People with an ostomy or j-pouch in Calgary and Alberta are invited to our next Support Group, in person or via Zoom!

Are you or someone you know living with an ostomy or j-pouch? The Calgary Ostomy Support Group is here to help! Join us on May 31 to meet other ostomates, connect, share stories, and get the resources needed to support and manage your ostomy. No one should have to go through it alone – let us help you!

We will discuss various topics to support those living with an ostomy or j-pouch, including diet, nutrition, hydration, and mental wellness. There will be a breakout room for ostomates & j-pouchers to allow for a more in-depth discussion regarding issues that differ from an ostomy to a j-pouch, including ostomy appliances and j-pouch function (dependent on attendance).

Hybrid Meeting Info

Attendees have the option to join the Ostomy & J-Pouch Support Group in person at the Crowfoot Library or via Zoom! Please plan to arrive at 6:30 pm. You are welcome to assist with set up beginning at 6. Light refreshments will be provided. Zoom will run from 6:30 to 8:15, as some time is required for takedown. There will be a breakout group for J-pouchers from 7:30 – 8:30 in Meeting Room 2. We plan to go for dinner afterward at Stavros Pizza.
