AGL OBJECTIVES:


The Galician Association of Lymphedema, Lipedema and Chronic Venous Insufficiency (AGL) , intends to direct its actions towards social awareness, including 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 raise awareness towards 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.
