Welcome to NAMS February Newsletter.
National Make a friend day
The month of February has national make a friend day where we are encouraged to move beyond our usual groups and meet new people.
Making a connection with someone new can bring new experiences and fun into your life and theirs, so now might be a good time to consider joining a support group.
If you are interested in finding out where there is a stoma support group near you, please call us at NAMS and we will help.
Did you know that you are able to request your medication directly from your personal health record?
If you have access to the internet and would like to know more about this, then please ask our coordinators when you next call in.
