BIG SUCCESS FOR THE LYMPHEDEMA SCIENTIFIC CONGRESS / PORTUGAL- JANUARY 2016 / THE LYMPHOEDEMA ASSOCIATION OF PORTUGAL - ANDLINFA


The 1st Portuguese Lymphedema Scientific Congress was a big success. It was attended by more than a 100 health professionals and public from all over Portugal, and the presentation was pre-registered to full capacity. This was a comprehensive one-day conference presented in an academic setting, and organized by the ANDLINFA- The Portuguese Lymphedema Association. The congress agenda featured a distinguished faculty, headed by leading authority on treatment for lymphatic disorders.


This was a big step forward for health workers and therapists treating Lymphedema, as this is really the first time they have all had a chance to meet together like this. It was a day of education that will help to create a network of professionals working with this disease, and ultimately this will lead to higher recognition and better management of Lymphedema in Portugal, which is the goal of the Association. 





This first scientific congress was well-received, and speakers and participants all alike, stated looking forward to a new future event.
