Ulster County Lyme Disease Support Group April Meeting

// April 22nd, 2012 // No Comments » // LymeBites Blog, Support Groups

Hey everyone!  The (mid) Ulster County Lyme Disease Support Group for April is this Wednesday April 25th, 2012.  Here is the information from March Gallagher, the person who has taken so much of her time for several years to make this group even be available for all those who need it.  Also, anyone who is willing or able to help March out with the support group please read her note below.

Hope to see you all there!

Lyme Support Meeting, YES!

Hi folks,

There WILL be a Mid-Ulster Lyme Support Meeting this Wednesday

Come and share a tip or fear about tick management.

7:00-8:30 pm
Hudson Valley Sudbury School
84 Zena Road, Kingston

For more information:
March Gallagher

PS:  For those who wish to know or haven’t been invited to this group before:
This is not a group in which experts come present information.  This is a group of regular people who need to vent about how much lyme sucks and share info.
I started this Ulster County Lyme Support Group in 2008 when I found myself traveling to Northern Dutchess to find support.
We met the 4th Wednesday of every month until the beginning of 2012.  Consistency to time and place of meetings is key for support.
I have to work some evenings and this made the pr and running meetings hard to manage, thus I discontinued the group.
Upon numerous requests and in light of the very TICKY spring I am restarting this group.
If there is any assistance you can give the group let me know.

Our mission is advocacy, education of the public, education of health care professionals and Lyme and associated disease research.  Empire State is based in Manorville, NY and is active in local, state, and national issues.  There is a desperate need for public awareness of tick-borne illnesses. Our goal is to prevent chronic tick-borne diseases, by education about prevention which includes crucial early diagnosis and by promoting a quality of health care that needs to be provided to patients with both early and chronic tick-borne diseases.
