Update - Tuesday March 31, 2020

At this unprecedented time, our primary thoughts and priority are toward the health and welfare of our members and the wider community as the COVID-19 outbreak evolves rapidly across the globe.

Following recent announcements by the Massachusetts Department of Health, the Governor of Massachusetts and President Trump including travel restrictions and the ban on large gatherings, the Planning Committee is currently assessing options for the 4th Annual Lymphatic Symposium.  At this point, it has been decided that the Symposium will be postponed and will not occur November 13-14, 2020, as planned and to reschedule in 2021.  I am sure you can imagine the work this entails.

On behalf of the Planning Committee, I would particularly like to thank all the Committees for their work during this time – they have worked extraordinarily hard to this stage and will now assist us to navigate through the present situation. We also thank all our valued clinician and patient attendees, conference faculty, guest speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for your patience and understanding. More details to follow and we will provide an update regarding the symposium at the earliest possible opportunity.

Please stay safe and healthy during this difficult time.

It is with great anticipation and enthusiasm that I extend a warm welcome to all attendees who will be joining us at the 4th Annual Patient Lymphatic Symposium.  In an effort to expand our 2019 theme of “All about YOU’, 2020 promises to focus on “The POWER of YOU”.   As a seasoned patient, it has been my experience that YOU are your best advocate for healing and well-being.

ln an effort to support your own advocacy, our goal is to provide you with the most recent, state of the art care and maintenance for Lymphatic Disease.   As a result, this years’ patient symposium will coincide with the Clinical Lymphatic Symposium which allows us to hear from clinicians from around the world who will share their international perspective on lymphatic clinical care, research, trials and successes.  Their expertise will be shared with all of you so that you can tap into your own Power to determine the best path to healing for YOU.

Once again we will be meeting at the Joseph B Martin Center Rotunda Room.  Keep in mind, space is limited, so I invite you to take advantage of the early bird special fee and register before June 1, 2020.

May you discover the source of healing and transformative Power of YOU.
