Dr. Rockson is an Allan and Tina Neill Professor of Lymphatic Research and Medicine, Professor of Medicine, and Director at Center for Lymphatic and Venous Disorders, Stanford University School of Medicine, and Falk Cardiovascular Research Center, and we are honored to have him.

On Friday, there are several educational sessions to enhance your clinical knowledge and a plenary season to present current research. JOBST and Medi-Circaid will offer focused workshops to provide an in-depth exploration and discussion of their products and measurement techniques. The day will end with a Networking Dinner, open to all faculty, exhibitors, and attendees at the Living Seas Restaurant at the renowned Epcot Center.

Throughout all three days of the conference, attendees can look forward to educational sessions furthering clinical practice, plenary sessions presenting ground-breaking research, roundtables encouraging lively discussion, panel discussions delving into advanced topics, exhibitor workshops sharing the newest and latest products, and poster sessions presenting unique patient cases and innovations in lymphology. Our final day will include our time-honored tradition of Recognition and Awards luncheon and conclude with a much anticipated talk on The Future of Lymphedema Treatment.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
