On behalf of the Boston Lymphatic Center, a joint program between the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital, teaching affiliates of Harvard Medical School, welcome to the 2021 Boston Lymphatic Symposium! The Boston Lymphatic Center is a Comprehensive Center of Excellence and the Symposium is held in partnership with the Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN).

First, we want to recognize that these are difficult times and hope everyone is finding ways to remain healthy and connected.  The safety of the faculty and participants of the Symposium remains our first priority.  After carefully reviewing local, state and national guidelines as well with input from our Committee Chairs, we have made the decision that the 2021 Boston Lymphatic Symposium will be held virtually.  It was a difficult decision not to see everyone in person, but we remain hopeful that better days lie ahead. In the interim, thanks to modern technology, you will be able to view the presentations live by webcast and have access to all recordings for 90 days after the meeting. Breakout sessions will only be available during the live webcast.

We invite you to visit the below links where more information is available regarding the speakers and agenda for the Patient and Clinical Symposia, respectively.  The Patient Symposium will be held on October 30, 2021.  The Clinical Symposium will be held November 5-6, 2021.  We will be frequently updating this site. Please note our early bird discount if you register by June 7, 2021!

Looking forward to “seeing” you soon!
