Entitled, “The Isolation of Lymphedema”, this image was created by CDC Epidemiologist, Caitlin Worrell, in the Center for Global Health. CDC has partnered with the Indian NGO, Church’s Auxiliary for School Action (CASA), to bring simple and effective treatments to individuals suffering from lymphedema in India. The woman pictured here, with advanced lymphedema of both legs, was identified by health outreach workers during a morbidity census that took place in June, 2012, aimed at estimating the burden of this disease in the Ganjam District, Orissa State, India. This photo earned Caitlin a tie for the Third Place award in the 2013 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International People”.
