Lyme Connection (formerly the Ridgefield Lyme Disease Task Force) once again offers an exciting program for patients on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, CT entitled “Lyme Disease: Why Can’t We Get Better? From Symptoms to Solutions.”

During the day portion of the program from 1-4pm, Drs. Lee Cowden and Eva Sapi will give presentations. The evening portion will begin with the annual Health Fair at 6pm, followed by the Spring Seminar with speaker Dr. Richard Horowitz. A leading Lyme doctor, Dr. Horowitz has, among other accomplishments, written an outstanding book entitled Why Can’t I Get Better: Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Illness. In addition, Pat Smith, president of the Lyme Disease Association, will be presented with the Courage in Advocacy award — a well-deserved honor for her excellent leadership of over 20 years, tirelessly advocating for the needs of patients. The event is free and open to the public. For more details including directions, please visit the following link: Lyme Connection Conference and Health Fair.

The annual Lyme Disease Association conference, co-sponsored by Columbia University, will be taking place at the Providence Marriott Downtown in Providence, RI on May 3rd and 4th. As always, the conference will cover some of the cutting edge research regarding tick-borne and related illnesses. CMEs are available, as well as CEUs for social workers (under NASW-RI). I’ve learned that Connecticut accepts all CEUs from other state NASW chapters, and am delighted to have the opportunity for CEUs as an added benefit to my attending.

I encourage all those who are impacted by Lyme, whether or not it affects a family member, to come and learn about the latest research.
