West Shore Medical Center is hosting a free seminar on lymphedema on Thursday, June 21, from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Education Center.
Lymphedema is a condition characterized by fluid retention and swelling due to a compromised lymphatic system. Primary lymphedema is caused by a congenital malformation of the lymphatic system and may be present at birth or develop later in life, often in puberty or during pregnancy. Secondary lymphedema is more common and is often the result of surgery or radiation therapy for cancer.
Learn more about the causes, complications, and current treatment options with West Shore Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Team. Certified Lymphedema Therapists, Annette Hart, OTR, and Judy Stocki, OTA, will present.
Light refreshments will be served. A door prize will be awarded at the end of the evening.
Space is limited, so reserve your seat today! Call (231) 398-1189 for more information or to make a reservation. West Shore Medical Center is located at 1465 E. Parkdale Ave. in Manistee.
