The Story

The Fat Disorders Research Society (FDRS) is hosting a conference "Living with Lipedema and Dealing with Dercum's" April 8-10, 2016 at the Marriott St. Louis Airport hotel in St. Louis, MO. Keynote speaker is world renowned Fat Disorder expert, Karen L. Herbst, MD, PhD. Topics to include surgical and non-surgical treatment options in managing both Lipedema and Dercum's Disease.

Many patients who suffer from lipedema and/or Dercum's Disease are no longer able to work and live on a limited fixed income. 

FDRS does not want financial hardship to keep anyone from attending the annual conference. As such, they are offering a limited number of financial hardship scholarships to offset registration fees for the 2016 FDRS conference in St. Louis, Missouri.

FDRS needs our help to fund these financial assistance scholarships.  The registration fees are $175 and covers the expenses of the conference.  Your donation will help a patient attend the conference who would otherwise be unable to attend.
