Review for Lymphatic Education & Research Network, New York, NY, USA
The Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN) has undergone a tremendous level of change over the past few years. LE&RN has always done an effective job of bringing the Lymphatic system to the forefront of the research community through its funding of such research. It has now added an educational component to its mission. In addition to funding lymphatic research, LE&RN has: created a tissue bank/patient registry to foster increased independent research; developed a webinar series to educate patients and doctors to become more aware of what is happening with lymphatic disorders; enhanced their website to provide more easy to understand information and resources so that patients do not feel confused and isolated; helped people to find their voice and not be ashamed about Lymphedema and other Lymphatic disorders; produced a world-class research journal updating doctors and researchers as to what is happening in lymphatic research; and so much more. LE&RN has done an incredible job of transforming themselves into a more relevant and important organization. They are definitely an organization to watch… they will change the world.
