Sessions are held in the Second Floor meeting room at Country Grocer on Bowen Road in Nanaimo. Access is via the stairs through the door to the left of the entrance to the store’s cafeteria.
These are not business oriented get-togethers but rather just a group of ostomates, families and friends who meet once a month to spend some time in informal conversation and discussions on the various aspects of living with an ostomy. New people are always made welcome to the group!
