Update - August 1, 2020

First and foremost, our primary thoughts and priority remain toward the health and welfare of our members and wider community as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.

We want to provide an update to our initial March, 2020 announcement when we made the decision to postpone the 4th Annual Lymphatic Symposium originally planned for November 2020.  After significant deliberation prioritizing the safety of our Symposium attendees and faculty, the Chairs of all the Committees came to a unanimous decision to reschedule our 4th Annual Lymphatic Symposium until November, 2021.  A final decision regarding the format of the November 2021 symposium will be made by the New Year (January 1, 2021).  Please continue to check the website for more information.

I would personally like to extend my sincere thanks to all the Committee Chairpersons for their continued hard work during this time to ensure that our event remains of the highest caliber while ensuring the safety of the participants.  They have been working extra-ordinarily hard and will continue to help us navigate through the present situation. We also thank all our valued clinical and patient symposium attendees, conference faculty, guest speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for your patience and understanding.

Please stay safe and healthy during this difficult time.  We will be back in touch soon.

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.
