It took panelist Jenny Beaujean 45 years to get a lipedema diagnosis. May it never take anyone that long again!
The Lipedema Patient Roundtable made good on its 2023 resolution by bringing in special guests to add leading-edge information to the monthly conversations. Guy Eakin, Chief Science Officer for Lipedema Foundation, answered questions about research initiatives and the Lipedema Patient Registry. His colleague, Kathy Doherty, informed the audience about the newly released Lipedema Patient Bill of Rights, which can be found at lipedema.org. And guest April Sluder, who leads the group The Lipedema Journey, spoke about her Mindful Movement collaboration with Pattie Cornute. Cara Cruz‘s healing journey after her final surgery, ways to boost your mood with color, and the mind/body/brain connection added to the invigorating conversation.
Thanks to our regular panelists as well as the record number of attendees!
