Welcome to Lyme Connection
Lyme Connection represents patients, family members, practitioners, researchers and community members committed to ending the suffering caused by tick-borne diseases. We educate the community about prevention and early diagnosis and support patients.
Our goal is to connect patients with compassionate care, helpful services and fellow patients. We offer the encouragement and validation needed to make it through what is often a daunting challenge. Come join us.
Lyme Connection Kicks Off Campaign: Little Tick, Big Problem --All Year!
Lyme Connection's new billboard campaign debuted this month, with two high-traffic locations selected for the kickoff -- White Street in Danbury, CT and 6 West in Newtown, CT. We want community members to know that ticks are a health concern all year 'round and that Lyme Connection is a resource they can turn to for education, resources and support.
We've gotten terrific feedback. Let us know if you see the boards and what you think!
New Evening Support Group
This is an open format support group. The goal is to generate supportive, positive energy between members, share information and experiences, and ask questions. There may be occasions that are topic focused with the theme coming from members' suggestions. The last approximately 15-30 minutes of the group will be available for small group and personal conversations.
Special topics, guest speakers and holiday/ weather cancellations are posted on our website. We follow the Ridgefield school schedule during inclement weather. Groups are always cancelled when school and/or after school activities are cancelled.
This new evening support group is in addition to the one already scheduled on the second Thursday of each month.
