Financial Assistance Available for Patients

Lyme Connection received a $25,500 three-year grant grant from The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven to support patients with medical expenses. These funds will be used to assist Connecticut residents in need of financial assistance in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases from doctors following the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) guidelines. Connecticut residents, who fall at or below 85% of the State Median Income Level, receive state or federal assistance are encouraged to apply.

The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven is a philanthropic institution that was established in 1928 as the community’s permanent charitable endowment. Nurse practitioner Elizabeth (Betsey) White was loved throughout the Lyme community for her intelligence, kindness and commitment to supporting the needs of her fellow patients. Applicants must complete the application and submit with supportive documents. Families who are at or below 85% of the State Median Income or participate in state or federal assistance programs should consider applying.

The Importance of Detox in Treatment and Recovery

For treatment of Lyme and coinfections to be successful it is crucial to get toxins out of the body. The body must be able to evacuate waste effectively. Sometimes in the course of the illness our bodies and organs need help with this process. Finding an efficient and manageable detox routine that works for you is vital. Dr Bossio will present about the importance and necessity of detoxification and a variety of medical and natural ways to effectively detox.

There will also be time for questions and discussion after her presentation.

Even if you currently follow a detox routine, come learn about other effective options.
