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.

Have you heard about our grants?
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. Read more HERE.
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.
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.
