Dear friends,

It was lovely to see so many of you at the 2023 ILF conference last week in Nottingham. And, what an event it was with people from all over the world — a truly global gathering of healthcare professionals all with a passion to learn and raise awareness and improve the care of people with lymphoedema/lipoedema and related lymphatic disorders. As well as the packed scientific programme and skill zones, I am sure all those who attended will agree that the opportunity to network with others in the field was very special. The enthusiastic engagement with industry in the exhibition hall, learning about innovations and new products was very apparent.

As always, patients are at the heart of all ILF activities, as shown by our patient day, which was attended by around 42 patients.

And remember, if you did not get the chance to come to Nottingham, you can still watch the presentations and connect with other delegates from around the world by joining the conference virtually #ILF2023.

Do keep us updated with your news — it is great to hear and is important.

With best wishes from
Christine Moffatt CBE and the ILF Board of Directors

Montpelier lymphology day for parents and toddlers

Coordinated by the Montpellier Reference Center for Rare Vascular and Lymphatic Diseases, AVML patient support group, and the Partenariat Français du Lymphœdème (ILF French partner), the lymphology day for toddlers living with lymphodema and their parents was held on Monday, 5 June at the Primary Lympoedema CRMR of Saint-Eloi Hospital (Montpellier University Hospital).

Through multidisciplinary consultations, a group session with a clinical psychologist and many exchanges between parents and professionals, the day answered parents’ questions and concerns about lymphoedema and created links between families. Parents also had the opportunity to meet the AVML patients' support group volunteers during lunch time.

Industry support

The work of the ILF would not be possible without industry support. We thank the ILF Industry Partners for their continued engagement and support.
