In this installment of the Lympha Press Leadership Series, learn more about Kathleen Lisson, CLT, and how her desire to help reduce the side effects of her mother’s cancer led her first to massage therapy, then manual lymph drainage, and certification as a lymphedema therapist.
A contributor to the Standard of Care for Lipedema in the United States and a prolific author, Lisson is fueled by curiosity. “I want to wake up every day with the intention of learning something new,” she says.
Patients will be inspired by her respect for them; in fact, she says to her patients, “You’re calling the shots.” Respectful of the care team, she delights in collaboration and learning new techniques to help patients. She admits to many a late night on PubMed and is devoted to advancing awareness and education. Follow her on social media at @KathleenLisson.
The Lympha Press Leadership Series is intended to raise awareness to leaders in lymphedema, CVI, wounds, and lipedema and the organizations that advocate for awareness and research. Lympha Press is proud to offer this content to serve both clinicians and patients.
