August 2020 SWELL GROUP Meeting at Overlake Cancer Center
August 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
“Infection Risk Reduction Practices for Lymphedema” will be the presentation by Lynn Fass, Registered Nurse, Certified Lymphedema Therapist, and Board Co-President of the Northwest Lymphedema Center. Especially in this COVID-19 era when for many connecting with their lymphatic therapists may have become more difficult, learning to identify and have strategies for dealing with potential risks and challenges (such as extreme summer heat) we hope will be helpful. After the presentation, Jenn MacArthur, also a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and the Group Faciliator, will lead a discussion with participants. Family members or significant others are invited to attend as well. People who live outside the Seattle area or even out of Washington State can join too: presently we are proud to have a regular attendee from Kansas!
