Akron Area Ostomy Association at a Glance

A Bit of Background

The Akron Area Ostomy Association is  first and foremost a support group for those dealing with an ostomy surgery and for those anticipating such a surgery.  We meet monthly on the fourth  Wednesday  of the month from August through November and January through May at the Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.  We get together at a local restaurant for our December and June meetings.  Anyone is welcome to join us at our meetings.  Membership in AAOA is not a requirement to attend.
