UroMed Sponsors UC Health’s Drake Center Urology Conference

UC Health hosted a urology conference on May 15th at the Drake Center in Cincinnati, OH, and UroMed was present as a sponsor and participant.

The conference focused on Neurogenic Bladder issues and attendees were eligible to receive 4 nursing contact hours.

The educational topics featured at the conference included:

  • Anatomy of the urinary tract
  • Voiding of the bladder
  • Physiology of erectile function
  • Urinary retention
  • Severe organ dysfunction

UroMed representative Vicki Sizer was available to help answer questions on UroMed’s services and available resources for both clinician and patient education.

UroMed had plenty of information on hand for both clinicians and patients.

UroMed sponsors events like the Drake Center Urology Conference as a means of improving the level of care available to the community we serve.   We focus our community sponsorship efforts on three primary areas:

  • Condition-related associations that focus on education, awareness and support
  • Sports programs for the disabled
  • Leadership and motivational programs for disabled youth

Most of UroMed’s customers experience urological or incontinence issues, and have conditions like Spinal Cord Injury, Spina Bifida, Transverse Myelitis or Multiple Sclerosis.

Additionally, many of our employees volunteer their time and efforts at various community events. Many of our employees have a personal connection to the following non-profit organizations, as 20% of our customer care associates either has a disability or has a family member with a disabling condition.
