How the summit transforms.
I don't think you'll ever know what this summit meant in my journey, I'm still processing everything, but I can say a seed of acceptance was planted and that is huge, beyond words. I love you all and I'm deeply grateful for all you folks do!

Your Supportive Circle for Lichen Sclerosus

Let's face it, navigating Lichen Sclerosus can feel overwhelming. But you don't have to go through this alone!

The Lichen Sclerosus Support Network is excited to host the 4th annual Wholistic Healing Summit, a virtual event designed to empower individuals living with Lichen Sclerosus and their support systems.

This year, we're focusing on Reconnecting and Healing. We know the journey with LS isn't just yours – it impacts the amazing people who support you.

Learn from the best

Save yourself a trip to DC or Florida and join world-renowned vulvar specialists, researchers, authors, and educators Dr. Jill Krapf and Dr. Andrew Goldstein.

Dr. Krapf will teach you the ins and outs of LS so you can better understand how to manage your condition and have better sexual health.

Dr. Goldstien will catch you up on LS from a research standpoint, what's the latest treatment research, and what's happening in LS early detection.

Walk away feeling empowered to conquer your condition and saying to yourself, as a past year attendee did, “The session … was priceless.”

Wholitic Healing Summit is important to people with lichen sclerosus to  open communication with their partners and caregivers.

Get the toolkit to better relationships

Lichen sclerosus affects all of our relationships, whether with partners, family, or friends. Having the tools to support these relationships and talk about your condition increases your health and happiness.

Open communication: Effective communication between you, your partner(s), and caregivers is essential for building a strong support system and addressing challenges openly.

Shared understanding: The more your loved ones know about LS, the better equipped they are to support you emotionally and practically.

Empowering disclosure: Whether it's with your healthcare provider, a close friend, or even a support group, open communication can be incredibly freeing.

Attend the Wholistic Healing Summit From Anywhere in the World!

100% Virtual, Safe, and Supportive Environment

The Wholistic Healing Summit is designed for maximum accessibility and comfort. Here's what makes it the perfect platform for you:

  • Join from Anywhere: Join from your computer, laptop, or mobile device. We'll be there.
  • Safe and Secure Platform: The event will be held inside our off-social media private community to protect your information and privacy.
  • Supportive Community: As part of your WHS experience, you get a private community where you can chat and ask questions with other attendees.
  • Focus on Your Comfort: We want you to be comfortable so only the presenters' video will be recorded. However, audio will be captured during Q&A sessions and workshops.

LSSN prioritizes your safety and well-being. We offer a welcoming and supportive environment where you can connect, learn, and empower yourself on your LS journey.
