Pouch Information Day
Each year IA holds a Pouch Information Day which provides a full day of spreading information and awareness about internal pouches. There are talks from healthcare professionals, experiences from patients and the opportunity to mingle and share stories with others who have had a similar experience.
The event is for those already with an internal pouch, considering surgery, partners, friends and other family members, and anyone else with an interest in pouch surgery.
