CHICO, Calif. -  The Lyme Center of Chico is presenting a free educational seminar about Lyme Disease on Thursday, November 7, 2019, in Chico.  It's the third year for the event, which will take place at the Enloe Conference Center, 1528 Esplanade.

Lyme Disease is a bacterial infection most commonly transmitted by deer ticks and other vectors (mosquitoes, fleas, mites).   According to the Lyme Center, "The symptoms mimic other illnesses and diseases and can affect the musculoskeletal systems, neurologic system, digestive and excretory systems, respiratory/circulatory systems, reproductive system, as well as mental capabilities and psychological well being. Many people with Lyme disease have been diagnosed/misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), MS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, Endometriosis, Rheumatoid arthritis, ADHD, Mental illness and Depression."

The Seminar in Chico Thursday will focus on the Latest Diagnostic Testing Methods for Lyme disease and Co-Infections.  There are two sessions, one from 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. and one from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Speakers include Dr. Jyotsna Shah, President/Lab Director of IGeneX Labs in Milpitas, California and Markus Berger with Armin Labs in Germany.  The evening session will also include a presentation by Kathleen Steele, LCSW.  Steele has focused her practice on counseling Lyme patients and has first-hand experience of the difficulties those suffering from Lyme and their families experience day today.

The Chico Lyme Support Group meets the 3rd Monday of the month fro 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.  Their HELP LINE is (530) 877-6666. You can also learn more here.
