More than 160 'Wanna Wear One' at UNC Hospitals

As part of the "Wanna Wear One" project, more than 160 care providers at UNC Health Care wore an ostomy bag Oct. 26 - 28, 2010, in support of our ostomy patients.

Throughout the week the group learned a bit about what it feels like to wear an ostomy bag and also took photos of themselves doing everyday activities to reinforce that an ostomy doesn't have to interfere with everyday life.

At the end of the week, the group met to review ostomy technique and also received a special visit from a former colleague and a star ostomate.

Thanks to everyone who participated in "Wanna Wear One" and helped us learn more about ostomy and caring for our patients! Visit to learn more about the "Wanna Wear One" project.
