11 Health was delighted to attend and exhibit at the UOAA National Conference is St Louis, Missouri. Starting on Tuesday 1st Sept the conference is the largest gathering of ostomy patients as single event anywhere with over 300 ostomates plus their partners attending. The conference was a mix of interesting workshops and key note talks coupled with an exhibition. Michael gave a key note presentation at a Leadership Academy workshop about how to engage on social media and 11Health was unveiled as a key sponsor for the UOAA 5K charity fun runs.

Company Founder Michael Seres and Vice President of Sales Matthew Wilder were sponsors at this years event in St. Louis Missouri.

UOAA’s Fifth National Conference offered a variety of resources to everyone within the ostomy community. Our Conference featured great education, wonderful guest speakers, and most importantly—community amongst other people who have had or who may have ostomy or continent diversion surgery. All were welcome to participate in this amazing event—people who are currently living with an ostomy, those who may be having surgery in the near future, as well as family members, spouses, friends, and members of the medical community. Attendees received the answers they needed to adjust comfortably and to reach their ultimate goal of a “new normal” life.
