She is currently Secretary-General of the 42-nation International Society of Lymphology, editor of its journal Lymphology, supervisor of the ISL’s central office in Tucson, and director of the Lymphedema-Angiodysplasia Clinic at the University of Arizona where patients with lymphatic disorders are evaluated by non-invasive imaging and treated by operative and non-operative methods.
