Young Ostomate & Diversion Alliance of America (YODAA)

The Ileostomy and Internal Pouch Support Group - Young IA

Young IA aims to support the association’s younger members, and other young people, either pre-surgery or post-surgery, who undergo either an ileostomy or an internal pouch operation.

The Young IA co-ordinator serves on the association’s National Executive Committee to represent the interest of its young members. It is the responsibility of this person to identify the needs of those young members and ensure that IA is meeting those needs. At present IA's young members are defined as those under the age of 40.
