Southern Tier Lyme Support and Binghamton University were very proud to present a two-evening web-based event that explored the latest information on Lyme and Other Tick-borne Disease.
Our first webinar session (May 6, 7:00 pm) featured Dr. Steven Phillips and Dana Parish. Dr. Phillips is a renowned Yale-trained physician, international lecturer, and media go-to expert. Dana Parish is a chart-topping singer & songwriter for artists such as Celine Dion and Idina Menzel, and a major voice in the world of chronic illness & Lyme. Their recently released book, Chronic, has been described as “…a fascinating, superbly researched dive into the mysteries of autoimmune diseases and provides critical insights to patients and clinicians.” – Ying Zhang, MD, Ph.D. Johns Hopkins University.
Our second session (May 13, 7:00 pm), featured Dr. Robert Bransfield, a practicing psychiatrist and a past president of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). Dr. Bransfield is widely recognized as a leading authority on Lyme disease and joined us to discuss the potential impact of Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses on the brain.
We are very grateful to our webinar sponsors!
