About the Patient Day
The Patient Day is organised by the ILF in collaboration with the Danish Lymphoedema Framework and the Danish lymphoedema patient organisation DALYFO.
The Patient Day takes places on 20 November 2021 at Comfort Hotel Copenhagen Airport as a part of the International Lymphoedema Framework Conference 2021.
Patients are welcomed by representatives from DALYFO who are present and available for your assistance throughout the day. The programme is specially aimed at patients with lymphoedema and related disorders such as lipoedema. A number of international and Danish experts and patient representatives are presenting their knowledge and recent studies along with lymphoedema stories told by other patients. During the "Meet an Expert" session, you are invited to ask your own questions and have an instant answer from one of the lymphoedema experts in the panel.
The Patient Day is a great opportunity - not only to get updated on the latest knowledge about lymphoedema, treatment and self-management and many other topics - it is furthermore your chance to meet and network with other patients gathered in Copenhagen.
For all questions about the ILF 2021 Patient Day, please contact the ILF Conference Secretariat at email@example.com
