Lymphedema Support Group

The Lymphedema Support Group provides a safe place for anyone dealing with lymphedema as the result of impaired lymph system from birth or from an injury or illness. The group is run by certified lymphedema therapists who understand the challenges limb swelling can present. During monthly meetings, we’ll discuss ways to minimize symptoms and enjoy life to the fullest extent possible. Participants have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from each other’s experiences.

Monthly Meetings:

This group meets virtually on the third Tuesday of every month from 5 – 6:30 p.m. via Microsoft Teams. Email invites will be sent with meeting details for that month.
