Who We Are
The NOA mission is to be of service and assistance to all ostomates in the region, their family and friends, by providing instructional and informational services through our membership.
The NOA supports members who wish to become Certified Ostomy Visitors so that they can perform one-on-one information sessions with people either pre-or-post-ostomy surgery.
Over the years concerned members have attended UOAC led training programs to become Certified Ostomy Visitors to better support new ostomates regain their self-confidence and morale. In 2006, NOA began a formal Ostomy Visitor Program with a number of members becoming Certified Ostomy Visitors. The Chapter continues to advertise and promote their service to the Niagara medical community. The program is building as the Chapter receives referrals and requests for visits.
