Lyme Vigil and Protest Oct 10-11, Philadelphia, PA, USA

As many ME patients also have chronic Lyme, we feel that this information will be of interest to the ME community.

In concurrence with ID Week (Infectious Disease Conference Oct. 8-12, 2014, Philadelphia, PA, USA), Lyme protesters will be holding a candlelight vigil in honor of those who have died from Lyme disease, Friday, Oct. 10, 8:00pm at the downtown Marriott.

There will also be a protest Saturday October 11, from 8:00am to 3:00pm at the Philadelphia Convention Center (where the ID Week conference will be taking place). The protest will bring attention to the harm and discrimination caused to Lyme patients by the establishment's current definition and practices and promote patients' rights and compassionate care.
