IN HONOR OF WORLD LYMPHEDEMA DAY
Lymphedema is a chronic lymphatic disease that causes disfiguring swelling and pain in one or more parts of the body. It can be the result of damage or blockage of the lymph vessels or nodes. The National Institutes of Health estimates that 1 in 300 lives may be affected by primary lymphedema, and the World Health Organization estimates that more than 150 million people have secondary lymphedema. Attend this lunch and learn to find out more about lymphedema and the treatment options available.
