Central Vermont Lyme Disease Support Group
“Central VT Lyme Disease Support Group meets on the last Monday of the month, at 6pm. With the goal of raising awareness, offering support, and education on tick-borne illnesses, we meet for an hour to discuss treatment options, lifestyle modifications and alternative practices that can greatly help those living with Lyme disease. Though insurmountable at times, ‘you are not your disease’, there is hope and help to be found in a supportive, encouraging and uplifting environment. We invite you to join us for our next group meeting, and if you know anyone who has questions about Lyme, bring them too!”
