The Tioga County Lyme Disease Support Group meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19 in the Native Bagel, 1 Central Avenue, Wellsboro.
The meeting is free and open to anyone who lives in Tioga County or a surrounding county who wants to learn more about Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
A video titled “Lyme and Reason,” will be shown during the meeting.
The video is an interview with Dr. Steven Phillips, a Yale-trained specialist in Lyme, who will discuss Lyme; the common ties between tick-borne diseases and autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and rheumatoid arthritis; and why he disagrees with the Center for Disease Control’s stance on chronic Lyme disease. A group discussion will follow.
Luke Dunham and Thomas Putnam, both from the Wellsboro area, are regional co-leaders with the PA Lyme Resource Network and of the support group. Both have been diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease.
For information, contact Dunham and Putnam by email at email@example.com or by calling Putnam at 570-439-2000.
