I learned so much about lipedema and lymphedema from this conversation with Dr. Seo. Let me know if this interview resonates for you. Please share with anyone you think needs this information. About Dr. Seo The Lipedema Project started as a collaborative partnership between Mark L. Smith, MD, FACS, Director of the The Friedman Center for Breast and Lymphatic Surgery at Northwell Health in NY, and Catherine Seo, PhD, founder of Lipedema Simplified, LLC, and a lipedema patient, advocate and filmmaker in Boston. The Lipedema Project is a comprehensive transmedia program to increase awareness and provide education, research, and treatment for lipedema. With obesity reaching epidemic proportions and anti-fat bias prevalent in healthcare, it is critical that patients are correctly diagnosed and resources are invested in understanding this disease and how it can be treated. Drs. Smith and Seo have collaborated to bring together healthcare professional and patient populations to identify and solve the issues presented by this little-known fat disorder.  This unique and cutting-edge approach has led to the documentary film, The Disease They Call FAT, the First International Symposium on Lipedema, CME courses live and online, a global community of patients supporting one another, and an upcoming book on lipedema authored by the leading experts worldwide.  @Lipedema Simplified
