Lyme Disease: Why Can’t We Get Better? is the theme of this year’s Ridgefield Lyme Connection conference and health fair on May 12. This is the ninth year Lyme Connection has held its May Lyme Awareness month event at Western Connecticut State University (WCSU). All activities will be held in the Westside Student Center ballroom.
Free and open to the public, the event includes an afternoon integrative medicine workshop from 1 to 4pm with Dr. William Lee Cowden and Eva Sapi, Ph.D. A Lyme-focused health fair begins at 6pm and an evening presentation spotlighting the work of Lyme-treating physician and author Dr. Richard Horowitz at 7pm. Lyme Disease Association President Patricia V. Smith will also receive the first Courage in Advocacy Award. The program concludes at 9:30pm with a question and answer session.
The Lyme-focused health fair features exhibitors offering tick-control products and services, Lyme-literate providers, laboratories and other ancillary professionals who support the Lyme-patient community. No registration is required. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. Over 400 people from 10 states attended in 2014.
Lyme Connection, which began as the Ridgefield Lyme Disease Task Force, has served as a tick-borne disease resource in the greater Danbury area for the past 12 years. The group’s annual event sponsors include BugBeWear.com, IGeneX, Inc., Master Supplements, My Health 1st Urgent Care, NutraMedix and Select TCS Tick Control System.
