2023 Conference

The National Lymphedema Network is proud to present the 2023 NLN Conference Lymphological Investigations and Exploration held at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel October 4-8.

The conference theme represents the NLN as an organization where curiosity, innovation, and exploration are held in high esteem. These values lead to advancement in lymphology which ultimately improves the lives of people with lymphedema. Areas of clinical focus include wound care, head and neck lymphedema, and sexology. Discoveries related to central lymphatics and microsurgery for neurologic conditions will also take center stage. We hope you will give us the opportunity to take you on this year’s journey with us.

Program Objectives – At the end of the conference, participants will be able to:

  • Examine the importance of central lymphatics and the sequelae when dysfunction is present.
  • Compare the various effective interventions for complex wounds in the setting of lymphedema.
  • Organize the multiple approaches to managing head and neck lymphedema.
  • Question the role that brain lymphatics have on neurological diseases.
  • Relate the value of addressing sexuality to quality of life for patients with lymphedema.
  • Test multiple manual therapy techniques effective in managing lymphedema.
