Breast Cancer Survivorship Workshop - Understanding Lymphedema
Thu, May 25, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
Lymphedema is a disorder of the lymphatic system that may develop following breast cancer surgery. It remains a concerning secondary complication of many breast cancer patients. It is important to know your risk and learn about preventative measures that you can take. Dr. Justin Riutta, Director of Beaumont's Lymphedema Clinic and Cynthia Tan, specialized lymphedema physical therapist will lead an interactive lecture and demonstration followed by strength and resistance exercises that you can do at home. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and bring your questions.
