How to participate in lymphedema research?


Question from Sue K956: How can one participate in a research project for lymphedema?
Answers - Kathryn Schmitz I would direct you to www.oncolink.org. That's a fantastic resource for finding about research being done in survivors and patients. I am in the process of trying to disseminate the results of a large study about exercise and lymphedema. It's difficult.

On Wednesday, April 16, 2008, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Preventing and Treating Arm Lymphedema. Kathryn Schmitz, Ph.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.S.M.,Nicole Stout, M.P.T. C.L.T.-L.A.N.A., and moderator Jennifer Sabol, M.D., F.A.S.C. answered your questions about ways to prevent and manage lymphedema.
