Feeding Tube Awareness Week began back in 2011 by the wonderful efforts of the Feeding Tube Awareness Foundation. This awareness week is officially acknowledged on the National Health Observances calendar each year during the second week of February. Advocates are encouraged to use this time to promote the positive benefits of feeding tubes as life-saving medical interventions and fight the stigma surrounding them.
The Oley Foundation has a week full of presentations and support groups to help you navigate life with a feeding tube. Click on the buttons to learn more about what the Oley Foundation and the Feeding Tube Awareness Foundation are doing.
