Ostomy Bag Covers with StomaCloak-Travels Across the Nation

For the second straight year, StomaCloak has partnered with the Drive for Men’s Health Team in an effort to help raise ostomy awareness. This year’s Drive was a 6,000-mile journey across the United States from Florida to New York City and then across the United States to Los Angeles, California.

Meeting Up with the Guys

Along the way, drivers Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt and Dr. Sijo Parekattil made over 60 stops to recharge their all-electric powered TESLA. Each stop provided the doctors with an opportunity to discuss a specific aspect of men’s health. This year our President Pat Camp and Jerry Meisch, ostomate and Muskegon Ostomy Association Treasurer, had the opportunity to meet up with the guys in Maumee, Ohio.

Promoting Ostomy Awareness with #WannaWearOne

As part of her continuing efforts to support the #WannaWearOne campaign, Pat took the opportunity to educate the guys on all things ostomy and fitted both of the doctors with ostomy bags and StomaCloak covers. The experience clearly left an impression. Dr. Brahmbhatt noted, “It was a very humbling experience.”

Tips from Ostomates

The event also served as an opportunity for us to ask ostomates on Twitter, from around the world, for their tips on managing bathroom breaks while driving. Dr. Salisz and Dr. Stork took these tips and embedded them into a blog post and video. These tips serve to complement the tips from ostomates we received during last year’s Drive for Men’s Health.

A Shout Out to Drive for Men 

We at StomaCloak would like to give a huge shout out and thank you to Dr. Brahmbhatt and Dr. Parekattil for letting us participate in the Drive for Men’s Health again this year.  The drive, over the past two years, has gained national attention.  This year, after completing their journey, the doctor duo even got a congratulatory tweet from Dr. Sanjy Gupta.

We are very proud to be a part of this, now annual, men’s health event. The drive promotes wellness and healthy living for ostomates, and men in general.  We can’t wait to see what adventures next year’s Drive for Men’s Health will bring.
