Lyme Event – August 12, 2017 – Western Massachusetts

on August 7, 2017

I received this email today from Kenneth Mercure of the Lyme Alliance in the Berkshires (if you are happening upon this from a search engine, we are in Western MA):

 

Inside the Lyme Epidemic: Past, Present and Future with Pamela Weintraub

Saturday, August 12th, 2017 from 1:30 to 4:30 PM

Berkshire Athenaeum, Auditorium, 1 Wendell Avenue, Pittsfield, MA 01201

 

Lyme disease is at epidemic levels in Berkshire County! What should be an easily treated and manageable infection is being left to become a serious and evening life-threatening public health crisis. Lyme disease is under-reported, often misdiagnosed as something else and frequently suggested to be “all in your head”. There is a great disparity between the reality and seriousness of tick-borne infections and what is being touted as the ultimate truth about Lyme and its related diseases.

However, there is work being done to help bridge this gap. The Lyme Alliance of the Berkshires, a Pittsfield based organization started in 2011, tirelessly works to help educate the public and to help provide support for individuals who are currently suffering with tick-borne disease. As part of this work we routinely invite speakers and host educational events to help make the public more aware of this issue.

Continuing on this path of education and awareness the Lyme Alliance is hosting “Inside the Lyme Epidemic: Past, Present and Future” with Pamela Weintraub, author of the book Cure Unknown.

Nearly a decade after her beloved book was originally published, author Pamela Weintraub will tell her story and discuss what has changed in the world of Lyme since 2008 and what still needs to be done to help end the Lyme epidemic. Pamela will speak and then will interact with attendees and answer questions. We will have a door prize raffle as part of this event and refreshments will be available.

The event will be taking place in the Berkshire Athenaeum auditorium on 1 Wendell Avenue in Pittsfield, MA on Saturday, August 12th, 2017 from 1:30 to 4:30 PM.
