The BrightLife Direct Lymphedema Therapist Scholarship was conceived as a way for our company to give something back to the greater community of people suffering from lymphedema. With such a limited number of certified lymphedema therapists available, we want to help those affected to get the resources and treatment they need. Our goal is to promote awareness about lymphedema while providing resources to benefit the lymphedema community. We hope that this scholarship will provide students with the means to achieve their dreams of becoming therapists and in turn, help those suffering from lymphedema to find relief. In the first quarter of 2016, BrightLife Direct will award three (3) scholarships, valued at
five-hundred dollars ($500.00) each.
BrightLife Direct will provide $500.00 towards any complete (C) Lymphedema Certification Course listed on National Lymphedema Network. Funds will be applied directly to the course tuition.
