Jul 1 to Jul 21


These courses are an exciting educational portal to understanding the interplay of the lymphatic and vascular systems as related to patient health. This seminar is intended for physicians who need to diagnose and/or treat patients with lymphedema and/or lipedema.

Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to recognize the physical, imaging, and laboratory findings relevant to a lymphedema or lipedema diagnosis; compare and contrast the available therapies for lymphedema and lipedema; and diagnose potential candidates for lymphatic surgery.


This seminar offers 7 credits, and starts are 8:00 a.m. with a full buffet breakfast and ends at 6:00 p.m. It also includes a full buffet lunch. It is divided into the morning session, LEVEL 1 for 3 credits, and 4 credits for the afternoon LEVEL 2 session. It is possible to attend just the morning session with lunch, but both sessions are encouraged. Visit the LE&RN website for more details on the program and to register.
