TOUCHED BY LYME: Discussing my book at upcoming Lyme conferences
I am privileged to be able to attend six upcoming Lyme education events in the New England area. I will be speaking and/or signing copies of my book When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide and also providing information about the MyLymeData research project.

When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide offers practical strategies for parents coping with what can be a complex and puzzling illness. It gives advice on finding the right medical care, coping with treatment, developing effective boundaries with others who don’t understand what your family is going through, advocating for your child’s educational needs and managing day-to-day family life.
My co-author is Sandra Berenbaum, LCSW, a Connecticut psychotherapist who counsels Lyme patients and their families. She’ll be at some of the events too. Click here for more information about our book.
