Northeast Region WOCN®
This is Rachelle Sideris, President of the Northeast Region WOCN®. With everything going on in 2020, many of our Regions and Affiliates have had to cancel or delay annual conferences. In the Northeast, many of our members depend on local conferences for updated information, continuing education credits, and networking. Due to several travel bans and most importantly the health of our members, we are conducting a virtual conference Friday, November 6 - Sunday, November 8. We are offering up to 20 contact hours. This will be live-streamed and registered attendees will have On-Demand availability for an additional 2 weeks. Unfortunately, we are not in the position to offer complementary registration as was thoughtfully done by National WOCN®. We do recognize the financial burden many individuals are experiencing; therefore, we have significantly reduced our registration cost for our fellow members. For any active member, the cost is $50 and $75 for non-members. Poster submission is also open to all.

Friends of Ostomates Worldwide
We have seen an increase in the requests for ostomy products in the last few months and our shelves are low on products.
How you can help: Today more than ever our mission of supplying ostomy products to those in need around the world is critical. Many people around the world are struggling with serious health care issues. In the US we have processes in place to order and receive supplies but that process is not available to many in other countries. We have seen from the feedback that we get from the recipients of products that they are now able to move forward to living with an ostomy because they have odor proof products to manage their ostomy. Please consider a product or financial donation to Friends of Ostomates Worldwide - USA by sending the products or the financial donation to our warehouse: 4018 Bishop Lane Louisville, KY 40218-4539. We appreciate your past support and hope that you can continue with that support. Visit our website at https://www.fowusa.org for more information.
The Southeast Region of the WOCN® Society donates to the Friends of Ostomates Worldwide (FOW-USA), a volunteer-run, non-profit organization providing ostomy supplies and educational materials to people in need around the world. We encourage our members to donate as well.
