Our Top Lyme Blogs of the Year
2021 was a challenging year for many of us, with the COVID pandemic not only isolating us from our communities and loved ones but adding a worry for those of us already immunocompromised.

If you are willing to join me on our next IG Live series, please email me. We would love to hear about your Lyme journey.
