The Lymphatic Conference 2019 held in March, was nothing less than inspirational. There is something magical about having health care professionals all in one room, exchanging information and experiences. We all learn something from conferences.
2019 was the biggest lymphatic conference held by LAOSA to date with around 50 delegates attending, a good complement of surgeons and specialists presenting and an international speaker as the key note presenter.
The patient cocktail evening was also a first with a beautiful video displayed on a large screen of a patients story. This was well attended with over 60 guests! 40 more than had rsvp’d so we may have run out of food! But whose keeping tabs on that, right? Load shedding made sure we didn’t run too late into the night and landed us in darkness at 8pm, afterwhich the boma was emptied fairly quickly.
We are eagerly looking forward to next years event and hope it will bring more collaboration, fresh ideas and unusual case studies.
Well done LAOSA
