AGL OBJECTIVES

The aim of the Galician Association of lymphedema (AGL), is intended towards spreading social awareness on this lymphedema, 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.
The association would like to raise awareness amongst medical professionals, to promote research and improved treatments. The congress wants also to provide knowledge to those affected and their family, so too they can collaborate in the maintenance, of the improvements obtained through the professional health treatment.
