FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

National Lymphedema Network (NLN) Board Chair, Michael Cannon, announced today that lymphedema patient advocate and author, Sarah Bramblette, MPHL, will join the NLN Board of Directors.

Bramblette brings her experience with lymphedema care and advocacy to the organization’s leadership team. Sarah’s participation in the 2014 NLN Lymph Science Advocacy Program (LSAP) graduate helped to further her current lymphedema advocacy efforts including contributing articles about lipedema and lymphedema for several news outlets including HealthCentral, WEGOHealth, ObeistyHelp.com, Your Weight Matters Magazine, and most recently for LymphNotes. Her story has also been featured on the syndicated television show The Doctors, and she recently gave a TEDx talk, “Weight Bias in Healthcare,” focusing on how weight bias delayed her lymphedema and lipedema diagnosis. Bramblette is also the 2014 Obesity Action Coalition Member of the Year

Bramblette’s contributions will directly impact the NLN’s mission to create awareness of lymphedema through education and to promote and support the availability of quality medical treatment for all individuals at risk for or affected by lymphedema.

"Sarah brings important knowledge and experience as a highly effective advocate from the lipedema, lymphedema, and obesity communities to the NLN board. We look forward to working with her as the NLN progresses as a voice for patients, therapists, and the lymphatics field," said NLN Board Chair, Michael Cannon.

The NLN is excited to add Bramblette’s expertise to its planning efforts of the 2016 NLN International Conference in Dallas, TX this August 31 – September 4, including the 2016 Lymph Science Advocacy Program (LSAP). The conference will bring together hundreds of medical professionals, industry members, patients, and advocates to share breaking knowledge and techniques, promoting a better future for lymphedema patients and professionals.

The NLN was founded in 1988 to promote awareness of this under-served and often misdiagnosed condition, as well as to contribute knowledge and support to the global community of lymphedema patients and professionals.
