Organization: National Lymphedema Network
The National Lymphedema Network (NLN) invites you to attend its 2016 International Conference: Shaping the Future Through Commitment, Evidence, and New Frontiers, which will take place in Dallas, TX, from August 31 through September 4, 2016. Our opening keynote speaker will be Dr. Stanley G. Rockson, Chief of Consultative Cardiology, Allan and Tina Neill Professor of Lymphatic Research and Medicine, Professor of Medicine, Director, Center for Lymphatic and Venous Disorders, Stanford University School of Medicine, Falk Cardiovascular Research Center. Amy Santiago, Mrs. Central Florida and lymphedema ambassador, will be the Saturday luncheon keynote speaker.
“Together, both Dr. Rockson and Ms. Santiago will highlight the combined basic science, clinical research, and translational objectives of the 2016 NLN International Conference program,” said Dr. Eva Sevick-Muraca, Program Co-Director and NLN Board Member. “Dr. Rockson’s presentation highlights the meeting’s objectives to update the rare disease community with the most recent advances in the diagnostics and treatment of lymphedema as well as the scientific underpinnings of the ‘why’ and ‘how’ lymphatics dysfunction in the first place. Ms. Santiago’s presentation exemplifies the need to use this information to promote patient and clinician awareness that can help to shape policies to impact health care delivery to all patients with chronic conditions that involve the lymphatics.”
The 2016 NLN International Conference will bring together leading researchers, educators, and clinicians from around the world to share their current, cutting-edge innovations, developments, and techniques in the field of lymphology. Attendees may receive AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Registration is open online at www.lymphnet.org. For additional information, please call the NLN office at 1.800.541.3259 or 1.510.809.1660.
