Lymphoedema — Maroondah info session and morning tea

This event has past.

Location:  Maroondah Breast Clinic, Grey Street, Ringwood

March is Lymphoedema Awareness Month

After surgery and/or radiotherapy for the treatment of breast or gynaecological cancer, the lymphatic system may be damaged and there is a risk of developing lymphoedema. Learn about what lymphoedema is, early warning signs, how to minimise the risk of developing lymphoedema and what to do if it develops.  The impact of exercise and massage, as well as where to find assistance will also be covered.  Our presenter Helen Eason, Physiotherapist, is an accredited lymphoedema practitioner with 20 years experience in this field.

Join other women in Ringwood to participate in the live stream of this information webinar.  At 11.30am, following the webinar, we will learn new skills and movements in a light exercise program to support lymphoedema management. Stay afterwards for morning tea.
