Lewiston-Clarkston Ostomy Support Group meeting - May 8, 2017


History of Lewis-Clark United Ostomy Support Group:
The Lewiston-Clarkston Chapter of UOAA was started in the 1970s by two ostomates and a surgeon.  The two women were recruited by the surgeon as support for his patients with ostomies.  They grew the group over the years.  There was not an ostomy nurse in the area at that time, and the group helped send one of the local nurses, Jeannie Laws, to what was then called Enterostomal Therapy School.  She practiced at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center and supported the group for over 20 years. 

The LC Chapter focuses on support of potential and new Ostomates with one to one visits before and after surgery, supporting other Ostomates at meetings, and education to community and medical staff.  They have continued their generous support of nurses with a scholarship for WOC school and nursing school for nurses who have a passion for ostomy care.
