Our mission is to make the community a healthier place by preventing tick-borne diseases and supporting patients and their families throughout their illness.
Lyme Connection is a unique community-based organization, founded by families impacted by tickborne disease. We offer BLAST prevention programming as well as patient support services and educational events. Lyme patients and their families benefit from our free monthly support groups, seminars, annual conference and health fairs. Medical and mental health providers take part in the professional programs Lyme Connection offers to improve patient care.
Run by caring individuals who have directly experienced the impact of tickborne diseases, our organization understands the essential role wellness activities and educational resources play in recovery. We connect people to the fellow patients and professionals who can help make what is often a lonely and complicated experience less daunting.
Thousands of patients have turned to us for information and support since the group was created in 2003 as the Town of Ridgefield's Lyme Disease Task Force. We welcome your questions, donations and participation. Come join us.
