For this year’s World Lymphedema Day, I spoke with Dr. Gousopoulos about the globalization of the lymphedema community, the importance of patient involvement, and his vision as chair of the Europe Chapter of LE&RN.
“When my doctor told me I had lymphedema, I said, ‘OK. How do I fix it?’ She laughed at me and she goes, ‘Honey, you gotta live with it.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, that doesn’t work in my wheelhouse. I’ll find a way.'”
