The 2017 LE&RN/LymphNotes Therapist Scholarship, application deadline is Friday, August 4, 2017. Complete details are available on LE&RN's website. These scholarships are awarded annually in honor of writer and lymphedema advocate Ann Ehrlich who initiated the awards in 2013. We anticipate being able to award at least 10 scholarships this year. Award Amount: Up to $1,000 towards any Lymphedema Certification Course offered by a member of the North American Lymphedema Education Association (NALEA) or other certification program pre-approved by LE&RN. Funds will be applied directly to the course tuition.
Ann Ehrlich, founder of Lymph Notes, author of Living Well With Lymphedema and many other books, died on June 3, 2017. See her obituary for more information.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, friends honor Ann by contributing to the lymphedema scholarships through The Royalty Fund administered by Triangle Community Foundation. Memorial gifts may be made online through the Foundation’s website at http://trianglecf.org/donate/, or mailed to Triangle Community Foundation, P.O. Box 12729, Durham, NC 27709.
May her memory be for blessing.
