2015 National Lymphedema Conference

From Friday 23 October 2015
To Saturday 24 October 2015
Location: Coast Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre - Calgary 1316 33 Street NE Calgary, Alberta
The National Lymphedema Conference will be held October 23-24, 2015 in Calgary, Alberta.

Lymphedema affects many people of all ages, including approximately 300,000 Canadians. Yet this condition remains under-recognized, under-treated and underfunded. Events to raise awareness and education for people living with lymphedema and the health professionals who support their care are an important component of the Canadian Lymphedema Framework's visions that "comprehensive effective management of lymphedema and related disorders will be accessible to all persons across Canada" and that "people with and at risk of lymphedema are in optimal health". By working in collaboration with both international and provincial partners we can achieve these visions.

With a focus on education, research and partnerships, the key objectives of this conference are to:
  • provide a forum to educate attendees about lymphedema, its causes and treatments
  • update attendees on research initiatives and scientific advances in the field of lymphedema
  • promote partnerships between clinicians, researchers, patient advocacy groups and industry
  • showcase Alberta's leading edge clinical and research work and recent advocacy successes
