East Bay L.E.A.P.S. Monthly Meetup
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 /[masked] Broadway St, Oakland (Google Map (,+Oakland&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=3505+Broadway,+Oakland,+CA+94611&gl=us&ei=rReBTdamMZKcsQPFlOmMBg&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=image&resnum=1&ved=0CBYQ8gEwAA)) Parking: Underneath the Mosswood Building or on nearby side streets.
