If you are in the medical field, and you want helpful information to share with your patients, like pamphlets and posters, you can find them online at many sites that sell medical material. Patients who seek out your services will probably find it beneficial to be able to take reading material home with them that is brief and concise, such as brochures that discuss proper hygiene and skin care for lymphedema patients.

If you have lymphedema, and just want some information that can help you understand your condition better, there are also sites that provide this service.
