BIG SUCCESS FOR THE CYCLE OF LYMPHEDEMA CONFERENCES / THE LYMPHEDEMA ASSOCIATION OF GALICIA (EUROPE - SPAIN)

The two recent Lymphedema Conferences have been a big success, and were attended by numerous attendees. The audience was made up of health professionals and patients alike. 



The conferences were organized and presented by the Galician Lymphedema Association (AGL), and by Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Specialists Dr. Monica Romo Monje, of the Meixoeiro Hospital Lymphedema Service (Vigo-Pontevedra), and Dr. Rosa Martín Mourelle  of the Oza Coastal Hospital Lymphedema Service (A Coruña). 


The conference agendas also featured key speakers Gustavo Paseiro Ares, Professor of the Univesity of A Coruña, and Carlos Manero García, head of the Spanish Leduc School of Physiotherapy, as leading authorities on treatment for lymphatic disorders.




It was a new inspirational event focused towards establishing bonds between professional and lymphedema patients. This was also a chance to hear lectures by Manuela López de Vicuña, the representative from the sponsoring company Medi Bayreuth España, with a display of new and advanced products for the treatment of Lymphedema.



There was also technical support, by the Galician Confederation of People with Disabilities (COGAMI) represented by Social Worker María Araújo Rey, and the Galician Federation of Rare Diseases (FEGEREC).

These cycle of conference were well-received, and speakers and participants all alike, are looking forward to new future events.
