Clinical Symposium
November 10-11, 2023

*for Lymphedema Therapists

We are excited about the 2023 Boston Lymphatic Symposium, our first in-person clinical symposium since before COVID.  The main focus of this year’s programming with be Lymphedema Therapists!  In response to feedback from lymphedema therapists at our previous symposia, we will be presenting longer and more in depth sessions.   The format will include keynote presentations from experts on new discoveries in our understanding of lymphatic anatomy, the latest evidence regarding diagnosis, early intervention and the use of new technology.   We will also have smaller breakout sessions to allow for discussion of how new evidence and technology can be used for lymphatic therapy decision making and problem solving for complex cases.

As is true every year, we have world-renowned international and domestic faculty that kindly provide their time and expertise throughout the symposium.   Moreover, our engaged attendees have always led to insightful conversation and debate in this burgeoning field!

We thank you for your interest in the Symposium.  All videos of lectures from our prior symposia are provided free of charge by LE&RN and can be found on this website.   Over the past 4 years, we have had over 27,000 views of these lectures!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
