Lymphedema is a common problem that occurs when the lymph system is damaged, causing the build-up of fluids that lead to swelling, usually in an arm or leg. Participants will learn about lymphedema risk factors and precautions that can be adopted. Walker will also talk about treatment options that are available locally at the Samaritan Health and Rehabilitation Center.
