CAVENDISH, Vt. – The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association will sponsor a workshop on Living With Lyme disease Friday, Sept. 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Gethsemane Episcopal Church hall, 89 Depot St., in Proctorsville.

Rebecca Zellis, the founder of www.vtlyme.org, will lead a roundtable discussion on living with Lyme disease. Rebecca’s experience parenting a child with neuroborreliosis led to her work advocating for families affected by pediatric illness and tick-borne diseases. Rebecca educates health providers and education professionals about the psychiatric and cognitive manifestations of tick-borne diseases in children. She facilitates workshops and developed free online resources to support parents of children with complex Lyme disease.

Rebecca is an artist and writer. Her work ranges from personal projects to designing systems that support the wellbeing of families, employees, and communities. This is a valuable opportunity to learn more and to share your experience. With Lyme disease so much in the headlines and with the consequences potentially so serious, we should all learn as much as possible as a protective measure.

The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association continues to bring conservation and other topics of interest to the people through timely workshops and discussions. For more information about CCCA or this workshop, please call Robin at 802-226-7736.
