This is a grassroots and patient driven cause. Each person’s involvement makes a difference. Please learn more about this legislation, and the many quick and easy ways you can support its passage, by visiting www.LymphedemaTreatmentAct.org.
The National Lymphedema Network (NLN) is an internationally recognized non-profit organization founded in 1988 by Saskia R.J. Thiadens, R.N. to provide education and guidance to lymphedema patients, health care professionals and the general public by disseminating information on the risk reduction and management of primary and secondary lymphedema. The NLN is supported by tax-deductible donations and is a driving force behind the movement in the U.S. to standardize quality treatment for lymphedema patients nationwide. In addition, the NLN supports research into the causes and possible alternative treatments for this often incapacitating, long-neglected condition.
The Lipedema Project is a collaborative partnership between Mark L. Smith, MD, FACS, Director of the Friedman Center for Lymphedema Research & Treatment at The Center for Advanced Medicine at Northwell Health , and Catherine Seo, PhD, founder of Lipedema Simplified, LLC, and a lipedema patient, advocate and filmmaker. The Lipedema Project is a comprehensive transmedia program to increase awareness and provide education, research, and treatment for lipedema.
