Worldwide LAM Patient Coalition (WLPC)

The LAM Foundation is the global leader in LAM research. awareness, education, and patient services.  In January 2007, The LAM Foundation formed the Worldwide LAM Patient Coalition (WLPC) to collaborate with patient organizations in other countries.  The WLPC began with ten countries and has now expanded to eighteen.

The WLPC is an excellent avenue to increase numbers for clinical research projects, facilitate research, and aid in recruitment for clinical trials. The LAM Foundation is excited about this global organization and working with patients and medical personnel in other countries who wish to start LAM organizations and become members of the WLPC.

The WLPC members share information and ideas so that each country’s organization can continue to grow individually as well as globally.  This international movement to end LAM is a collaboration of many great minds working together for a cure.
