About World Lymphedema Day
WLD is an annual advocate-driven celebration, which was established in 2016 by the United States Senate in response to a bill written by the Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN). The year 2022 marks the 7th year of World Lymphedema Day. Although the day is called World Lymphedema Day, it’s about educating the world on all lymphatic diseases, including primary and secondary lymphedema (LE), lipedema (LI), lymphatic filariasis (LF), lymphatic malformations (LM), and the full lymphatic continuum (LC) of diseases impacted by the lymphatic system.
