In 2016, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recognized the Urology Care Foundation, as the official sponsor of this National Health Observance. The Foundation aims to support and improve the prevention, detection and treatment of urologic diseases through research and education. Millions of Americans struggle with the impacts of such bladder conditions and disease as urinary incontinence, overactive and underactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, urinary tract infections, nocturia, bedwetting, bladder cancer and neurogenic bladder, on a daily basis. These conditions have a significant impact on an individual’s health and quality of life.
People hide incontinence from their friends, family and even their significant other. Incontinence limits people’s lives and how they interact with each other – fear of having an accident takes precedence over time with friends, family and even work. It’s a taboo subject, but we believe we can change that. And you can help.
