NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, February 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- World Lymphedema Day, March 6, was officially established by the U.S. Senate in 2016, with the New York State legislature immediately following. Since then, it has developed into a truly global movement. As in past years, advocates around the world will recognize the day in various ways, such as posting events at WorldLymphedemaDay.org, signing the Change.org petition to the World Health Organization (WHO) asking that "LD Awareness & Cures" become the next World Health Day campaign, becoming Supporting Members of LE&RN at LymphaticNetwork.org/supporting-member, having local governments pass resolutions declaring March 6 to be World Lymphedema Day, or starting and joining local LE&RN Chapters at www.LymphaticNetwork.org/chapter-page.

This year, LE&RN will also offer free access to the e-book "Understanding Lymphedema: Keeping the Train on Track" by Dhruv Singhal, M.D.; illustrated by Megan Belanger, LMT, CMT; with a foreword by LE&RN Spokesperson Kathy Bates. Just be sure to sign up for LE&RN’s emails at www.LymphaticNetwork.org (click on “Sign up for e-news”) so that you can be included in this offer.

“We are also excited to be able to provide discount codes for our upcoming Walk series,” said Colleen McGuire, Chief Operating Officer for LE&RN. “LE&RN Run/Walks to Fight LE and LD (often called LymphWalks by those in the know) have become increasingly popular over the years and have now been held in several states. In honor of the five-year anniversary of World Lymphedema Day, we wanted to give more people a chance to attend these fun events. We will send email and social media followers a code that can be used on World Lymphedema Day. Just be sure to sign up for our emails on our website, www.Lymphaticnetwork.org, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. This year’s LymphWalks promise to be bigger and better than ever and we hope lots of people will take advantage of this discount and sign up in honor of World Lymphedema Day.”
