World Continence Week-US, 2010



From June 21 - 27, 2010, affiliated organizations from around the world did special promotions to help raise awareness of incontinence.

World Continence Week-USA 2010 hosted educational events during the week for this condition affecting 33 million Americans.

Grace Anatomy, Inc. collaborated, holding events in Huntsville, Alabama on June 25th.

Grace Anatomy, Inc in Huntsville, Alabama participated in World Continence Week with a class on Friday, June 25 at the Aegis Technology Building on Jan Davis Drive at 10:00 am.
All labor involved by members of Grace Anatomy were volunteered. However, actual expenses were reimbursed by World Continence Week-USA.

Sponsors and donors for World Continence Week USA include Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Hollister International, American Medical Systems, Rochester Medical Corporation and Calmoseptine. Other non-profit organizations involved in 2010 include the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates, The Simon Foundation for Incontinence, Women's Health Foundation and the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders.





Incontinence classes cover every aspect of living with leaking urine and or gas and stool. Twenty two classes have been held so far.

Insurance has reimbursed for the first time in U.S. history. The check is in the Bank not the mail! Hooray!

We have opened a new office in Huntsville, Alabama this year.
The first public series of classes began March 13th, 2009.


Men and women found the classes helpful and informative. Lectures have also been held for visiting nurses, prostate cancer support groups, senior citizens groups, local hospitals. irritable bowel support groups, and factory work wellness programs.


Classes were supported by your donations and grants from:
