Lymph Science Advocacy Program (LSAP)
A Training Program for Advocates for Research and Education about Lymphedema
The National Lymphedema Network (NLN) created the LSAP program in 2000 to educate advocates in the basic science of lymphedema and related disorders during the bi-annual NLN Conference, in response to the needs identified by lymphedema patients, caregivers, and family members. Participants are selected from submitted applications and represent a diversity of backgrounds and interests, including primary and secondary lymphedema patients from related causes.
The goal of the Lymph Science Advocacy Program (LSAP) is to engage and motivate patients and caregivers to action by providing a comprehensive understanding of the basic science, treatment, and clinical research of the lymphatic system, primary and secondary lymphedema, and related disorders.
