East Bay L.E.A.P.S. Monthly Meetup

  • January 16, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

At our monthly meetings, Lyme patients and their loved ones can meet to discuss the challenges faced in diagnosing, treating, and coping with Lyme disease and other tick-borne illness (including babesiosis, bartonella, and erlychiosis). In general, we do not discuss the political aspects of this controversial disease, but on occasion we take on special projects of political activism.

Come with your knowledge and compassion, a willingness to share your experience, and most importantly, to listen to others. LEAPS is a place where Lyme patients and their supporters can feel accepted in a constructive, nonjudgmental group setting and work toward healing.

Meeting Date: Third Thursday of the month.

Meeting Time: 6:00-8:00 PM

Meeting Location:
Kaiser Hospital-Oakland (Campus Map)
Mosswodd Building, Room 1130A / 1171
3505 Broadway St, Oakland (Google Map)

Parking: Underneath the Mosswood Building or on nearby side streets.  Do NOT give your keys to the valet parking attendants.  Tell them you will be staying late.

Public Transportation: Free Kaiser Shuttle Bus from Oakland BART station to Kaiser Main Hosptial (Shuttle Bus Info).  You'll need to walk a block or two from the Main Hospital Building to the Mosswood Building.  Kaiser campus map here.

    Actually 12 people attended. And we had two new members. It was a very good meeting I thought, and we went over time and nobody seemed to feel the need to leave, which was nice. We went about a half hour over.

    Nobody called us or emailed us or texted us so, I'm a little afraid to go through all that again and have nobody there.

      Carolyn, I'm sorry that nobody was there last time. I feel responsible for that. I had to cancel we couldn't find another person to lead it but we didn't think that people were coming because there hadn't been an RSVP. At least that was my understanding. Please Email me if you are in doubt about whether there's going to be a meeting. We have to get a little better at making sure the announcements go out rather than expecting people to check the Meetup website. You can email me through the Meetup page or send an email direct to my mailbox at [masked].

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
