For the second year, Omega is offering Living Well With Lyme, a program that shares the most current information on Lyme disease for those dealing with chronic symptoms and health-care providers who would like to become more Lyme literate.
Full and partial scholarships are available for this program to help cover tuition and accommodations and meals (or the commuter fee). People from throughout the U.S. are already signed up.
Many scholarship applicants have been dealing with chronic Lyme for a decade or more.
“I am looking forward to learning more coping mechanisms so that I can live as full a life as is possible for me," said Emily of Maryland, a 2015 scholarship recipient. "Over the years I've experienced changes that are worsening as time goes on—loss of memory, cognition, and just recently sudden dyslexia.”
When it comes to Lyme disease, many people like Emily go from doctor to doctor searching for relief from their symptoms. Unfortunately, Lyme and associated tick-borne coinfections are often overlooked because the disease mimics many other diseases and can be difficult to diagnose.
Living Well With Lyme features a medical doctor, naturopathic doctor, and Lyme survivor who will discuss health-care options based on the latest clinical research. They will help connect the dots between conventional treatments and complementary therapies, exploring strategies beyond antibiotics that patients can investigate with their physicians.
Scholarship applications are being accepted now through May 15th.
