Alberta Lymphedema Association


The Alberta Lymphedema Association (ALA) is a charitable organization founded in 2003 by a team of people who recognized the need to help people living with, or at risk of, lymphedema. An association committed to ongoing education of its stakeholders, ALA works to make a difference and empower affected individuals and their families to help manage this condition. ALA works from the patient standpoint.

Members of the association are from all walks of life and have had lymphedema touch them all in different ways. Our team consists of patients, doctors, nurses, researchers, therapists, garment fitters and family members. We are dedicated to providing resources and information, promoting education, increasing awareness, and offering support to those affected with or at risk of primary or secondary lymphedema, their families, health care professionals and the general public.
