SPECIAL PREMIERE SCREENING & RECEPTION

An estimated 17 million women in the U.S. and 350 million worldwide have the hereditary genetic fat disorder, lipedema/lipoedema, without knowing it. Anti-fat bias proliferates our healthcare system and this disorder is unknown and mis-diagnosed. The Disease They Call FAT, produced by Lipedema Simplified Productions in association with the Friedman Center for Lymphedema Research & Treatment, is a documentary that follow the challenges of diagnosis, surgery and recovery while women with the disorder, physicians, and researchers try to come to grips with the disease.

The Lipedema Project: The Friedman Center for Lymphedema Research & Treatment

The Friedman Center for Lymphedema Research & Treatment at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City, founded in 2013, now includes a scope of care & treatment for lipedema, a condition that can also result in lymphedema. To that end, the Friedman Center, partnered with Lipedema Simplified, have created the Lipedema Project, a comprehensive transmedia program to increase awareness and provide education, research and treatment for lipedema.

The Friedman Center is proud to sponsor the lipedema documentary, The Disease They Call FAT, the 1st International Symposium on Lipedema, the Lipedema Think Tank, and the Lipedema Solutions Forum for women with lipedema in April 2015.
