We are proud to announce the launch of a key piece of our navigation initiative: an online Lymphedema Therapist Directory for our 4-state region including Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
Even though medical journal articles on lymphedema are proliferating, much remains unknown about the disease. And public awareness about the condition remains lamentably low. So it’s important that people speak out about lymphedema, in discussions with friends and co-workers, and in the media, with the goal of raising awareness and making a convincing case to policymakers and legislators for more research and better treatment.
In 2020, we seized the moment to pivot to Zoom and in doing so, have been able to not only sustain our programs, but increase participation and reach a wider geography.
When the popular press focuses on Lymphedema it is always a welcome moment! Thank you to Lola E. Peters for sharing her Lymphedema journey and more in CROSSCUT. Thank you […]
