LE&RN's New York State Lobby Day takes place virtually today, Tuesday, February 23, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. LE&RN activists will join LE&RN staff members in video calls with representatives in Albany to ensure that our agenda of fighting lymphedema and lymphatic diseases is addressed during the 2021 legislative session. Several critical initiatives are at stake:

  • funding for LE&RN, which will allow us to continue our programs in 2021
  • passing a comprehensive LE treatment insurance bill
  • funding research fellowships at top New York State institutions seeking cures and new treatments for lymphatic diseases, such as lymphedema
