We are eagerly looking forward to the 16th Annual Lymphedema Conference on Saturday, October 27th in Toronto. You can learn more about it here.
Lymphedema Depot will be in attendance and we’ll have a booth. If you come and visit us in the exhibitor’s area you can enter a draw to win back your conference registration. It’s just our way of saying thanks!
The LAO conference is always an exciting time for us. We get to visit with people we haven’t seen in a while and we get to show what we have that is new. This is a great time to stop by and say hello and let us show you what we have! This is your chance to see and feel the skin friendly Tribute and Caresia garments. These simple yet effective gaments set the standard and are the key to simplified lymphedema treatment and management. You will also have a chance to see the new beige ReadyWrap and how great it looks, as well as the new ReadyWrap Extension Straps which add flexibility and versatility to ReadyWrap. If you or your patients have chronic swelling or venous issues, or related conditions, we have solutions!
There are other great reasons to attend the Conference, too. The list of speakers and workshop leaders is a veritable who’s who of the lymphedema community in Canada. Dr. Anna Towers, Dr. David Keast, Robert Harris, researcher Margie McNeely, educator and therapist Janice Yurick, and researcher for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Dr. Miles Johnson, are the experts’ experts. There will also be distinguished European visitors, Andreas and Hildegard Wittlinger of the Vodder Akademie and the Wittlinger Clinic in Austria. Who knows when you will have a chance to hear these great lifelong practitioners and advocates speak in one place again? The 16th Annual Lymphedema Conference is shaping up to be the best yet and you won’t want to miss it! There will be presentations for patients and health professionals, including presentations on the latest research and a performance of the Lymphedema Ethnodrama, a reality-based drama presented by breast cancer survivors on their experiences with lymphedema and other arm morbidity challenges.
Of special interest and appeal is the final event of the day, an Ask the Expert session with the panel of experts where conference attendees can pose questions and get answers about lymphedema, lipedema, chronic venous insufficiency and related conditions.
We’ll see you in Toronto!
