TIOGA COUNTY LYME DISEASE SUPPORT GROUP TO MEET JAN. 18

The Tioga County Region for the Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network will present "Under Our Skin," the untold story of Lyme disease, an exceedingly complex and often misunderstood disease.
This documentary film will be shown during the first meeting of the Tioga County Lyme Disease Support Group at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18 at the Tokishi Training Center at 124 Nypum Drive in Wellsboro. A question and answer session will follow, led by Linda Wales of Millerton, founder of A Hope for Lyme in Horseheads, New York.

Luke Dunham and Thomas Putnam, both from the Wellsboro area, are regional co-leaders with the network and both have been diagnosed with and are being treated for Lyme disease and/or co-infections. They recently formed the Tioga County support group under the auspices of the Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network, an all-volunteer statewide organization founded in 2012 by individuals with personal experiences with Lyme, Lyme co-infections and other tick-borne diseases, which can be contracted at the same time as Lyme from a tick bite.

Lyme disease has been confirmed in all 67 counties in Pennsylvania. The Commonwealth leads the nation in the number of cases diagnosed annually.

A 501c3 nonprofit, the network provides education, patient advocacy, support and resources to help others navigate Lyme and tick-borne illnesses in the Commonwealth and also supports regional and independent Lyme groups across the state that hold local meetings to give support, education, and resources to their local communities.

The Tioga County Lyme Disease Support Group will meet regularly on the third Thursday of each month from 6:30-8 p.m. The next meeting will be on Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Tokishi Training Center in Wellsboro.

For more information, contact Dunham and Putnam by email at tiogacountylyme@palyme.org or by calling Putnam at 570-439-2000.
