Catherine Seo, PhD, CoDirector of the Lipedema Project & Research Associate at the Földiklinik in Hinterzarten Germany has collaborated with Mark L. Smith, MD, FACS to bring together healthcare professional and patient populations to identify and solve the issues presented by this little-known fat disorder.  This unique and cutting-edge approach has led to the documentary film, The Disease They Call FAT, the First International Symposium on Lipedema, CME courses live and online, a global community of patients supporting one another, and an upcoming ebook on lipedema for clinicians authored by leading experts.

William Repicci, Executive Director of Lymphatic Research & Education Network (LE&RN) has been on the forefront of the current movement in awareness and research for lymphatic disorders. Signature programs include the awarding of research fellowships, the journal Lymphatic Research & Biology, the International Patient Registry & Tissue Bank, Lymphedema Therapist Scholarships, Investigator Travel Awards, Symposium Series, “Ask the Experts” program, State & International Chapters, weekly e-news outreach and LE&RN’s Virtual Expo.

GET THE LATEST INFORMATION ABOUT LIPEDEMA

Lipedema is a relatively common fat disorder that is often mistaken for simple obesity. Its clinical diagnosis is an adipose tissue disorder or a lipid metabolism disorder. A typical lipedema patient is a woman who struggles with large hips and legs, usually out of proportion to the rest of her body. Lipedema also appears in the upper arms. One of the hallmarks of the disease is that lipedema fat is relatively unresponsive to diet and exercise. These measures may lead to weight loss in other areas, but the size of the hips and legs remains disproportionately large. All of this and more will be discussed during The Lipedema Worldwide Summit 2016.
