TOUCHED BY LYME: “Empowering the patient” in Maine, April 26
I’m getting ready to pack my bags and fly east.
I’ll be speaking at “Empowering the Patient,” the 5th annual Lyme disease patient education conference, sponsored by Midcoast Lyme Disease Support and Education (MLDSE).
It takes place all day in Augusta, Maine, on Friday, April 26. No reservations required and it’s free of charge.
People familiar with our work know that Sandy and I are all about empowering patients.
The topic of my presentation will be “Survival Techniques for Families with Lyme Disease.” Sandy will talk about “Educational Options for Students with Lyme Disease.”
Distinguished line-up of speakers
The event runs from 8 am to 5 pm, with a dynamite line-up. Keynote speaker is Dr. Tom Moorcroft, DO, a former president of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). His topic is “Healing Lyme Brain: Gut-Brain Axis Approaches to Optimizing Brain Detoxification and Healing Chronic Illness.”
