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

Location visible 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 Ehrlichiosis). In general, we do not discuss the political aspects of this controversial disease, but on occasion, we take on special projects of political activism. We have the added issues now of the COVID-19 virus to talk about, not the least of which is the increased isolation for many of us. Let's talk about it! 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: 6:30-8:30 PM NEW Meeting Location: We meet on Zoom virtual (online) meeting space to be safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. If there are two or more folks who RSVP "yes", I'll create the Zoom meeting room and send out the link to you. Stay safe, eat well, and sleep enough! Bob
