WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US
Lipedema & Lymphedema Heart to Heart: Me, You, We, Us...
will continue our focus on community interaction and collaboration while delivering new information for patients who are newly diagnosed as well as experienced veterans. Seasoned clinicians along with healthcare professionals newly certified in the care of lymphatic disorders will gain new insight into these conditions.
This year’s event will foster collaboration between all participants including expert speakers, patients, caregivers, industry vendors, and clinicians. You'll get to learn from some of the best minds in the field and meet others who have similar challenges—and maybe even get some tips from them!
In the last decade, we've seen a revolution in our understanding of lipedema, lymphedema, and lipolymphedema. This change has come through research and clinical experience—and especially through the awakening of patients to the realities of living with these disorders.
Now is your chance to be part of this learning process!

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this event for?
Our aim is to provide useful and holistic strategies that would help treat lipedema, lymphedema, and lymphatic/fat disorders.
As a result, you will gain the opportunity to learn about, begin, enhance, or expand your holistic and well-balanced lifestyle and positively impact your own healing or that of your patients..
If you know you have these disorders, or suspect you do, are a therapist, caregiver, healthcare provider, researcher, advocate, surgeon, doctor, or human with interset in lymphatic/fat disoders, this is for you.
Is this an in-person live event?
This is a virtual event. We previously hosted our conferences in-person, with a smaller group of attendees at a much higher cost. But the unexpected opportunity of the pandemic and now due to current situations, we pivoted to make the conference available to you online, from the comfort of your own home, and at a much more affordable price.
We are able to have a global community event that brings participants from many countries. We hope you take this opportunity while it's available.
