March 6 – World Lymphedema Day

For all these reasons, the Lymphedema Association of Québec supports March 6 as World Lymphedema Day.

We call for increased funding for medical research, training programs for healthcare professionals, and better access to screening and specialized care for people at risk or living with lymphedema.
