AGL OBJECTIVES
In the Galician Association of lymphedema (AGL), we intend to direct our actions to social awareness, including spreading information on this illness, offering individual patient advice, and promoting specialized training.
Because the disease is poorly understood, despite the large numbers of existing cases, most diagnoses are late or delayed.
We would like to sensitize the medical professionals to promote research and improved treatments; and provide a minimum knowledge to those affected and their family, so they can collaborate in the maintenance of the improvements obtained, through professional health treatment.
