We are very excited this year's NLN conference will be held in tandem with a very special Patient Summit, which has been organized in partnership with the Lighthouse Lymphedema Network and will be held October 11-12, 2017. This collaboration offers an opportunity to connect with both colleagues and patients while learning the latest research and therapeutic approaches to lymphedema and lymphatic diseases. The Patient Summit will include topics such as healthy eating, exercise, skin care, and risk reduction.
Arrive early to join us on Wednesday for a pre-conference workshop on Advanced Wound Care lead by the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy and for a special "Stomp Out Lymphedema!" pre-dinner walk. The Pre-conference will take your clinical skills to the next level and the Walk will build community among patients and spread awareness about lymphedema. Be sure to register for both events!
Thursday will bring together patients, therapists, clinicians, and exhibitors for the commencement of the Medical Provider Conference. We welcome Dr. Stanley G. Rockson as the conference Keynote Speaker who will elaborate on Research Breakthroughs in Lymphology. Dr. Rockson is an Allan and Tina Neill Professor of Lymphatic Research and Medicine, Professor of Medicine, and Director at Center for Lymphatic and Venous Disorders, Stanford University School of Medicine, and Falk Cardiovascular Research Center, and we are honored to have him.
