The Pacific Coast Regions would like to thank the Los Angeles UOAA chapter for their generous donation to the WOCN Scholarship Fund. These monies were given to honor two past members that made significant and lasting contributions to the Ostomy Association of Los Angeles. Dr. Leon Trunk was very active in the organization in the areas of: patient advocacy, education, government affairs, and outreach. He also served as the Board of Directors Vice President. Sue Hertweck was involved in every aspect of OALA and was a 40 year board member and Board of Director official on several occasions. Her passion was educating and supporting ostomates in all aspects of their rehabilitation.
– Susan Foster, President-Elect
