June is Lipoedema Awareness Month

Around the world June is celebrated as Lipoedema Awareness Month.

In 2017 Lipoedema Australia enjoyed working with Lipoedema Awareness Ambassadors throughout Australia. From Perth to Darwin, Brisbane to Geelong. Hobart to Adelaide and country NSW to Canberra and Melbourne, members gathered to “Paint the Town Purple” lunch and chat and raise awareness of Lipoedema.

Each day throughout June an awareness poster was placed on our Facebook Support Group and general Facebook page. See Gallery below.

Postcards raising awareness of Lipoedema are available through the year. Simply send these postcards to your local MP, Federal and State Health Minister, Doctor, Specialist, Health Centre, to name a few. The postcard offers you a place to write about how Lipoedema affects your life and why you need Medicare to cover this condition. If you would like copies of this postcard, please send an email to us at
