    In Brattleboro…

    LYME DISEASE LECTURES: “An Integrative Approach to Successful Diagnosis Treatment,” a two-part lecture series, will be held Monday, May 12, and Saturday, May 17. Both lectures are free and will be held at Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St. A 15-minute question and answer session will follow each lecture. The lectures will be given by Dr. Emily Maiella, Naturopathic Physician, practicing in Brattleboro and in Montague, Mass.

    “Lyme Disease Basics” will be held on May 12 from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. This lecture will focus on tick identification, some common symptoms of Lyme, and proper testing, and how to interpret the test. There will be a preserved tick specimen collection to share, with ticks of all varieties and stages in their life cycle.

    “Lyme Disease Treatment” will be held on May 17 from noon to 1 p.m. How to successfully treat an acute case of Lyme will be explored, and how to address a more chronic infection, with anti-biotics (natural and pharmaceutical), immune modulators and anti-inflammatory herbs.

    Dr. Maiella has been successfully treating chronic Lyme disease and other tick-borne co-infections with an integrative medical approach.

    SHELTER TRAINING: The American Red Cross is hosting a workshop on shelter fundamentals on Monday, May 12, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at its office at 81 High St. Participants will learn the guidelines and procedures utilized in a Red Cross shelter during a disaster. Referencing shelter checklists, participants will work on a case study that takes them through four of the six phases of the “Shelter Cycle,” including opening, organizing, operating and closing a shelter. No prior experience is required to take the class, it is provided at no cost, and all are welcome to attend.


    There will be an additional training at the Masonic Lodge in Jamaica on May 31 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The training scheduled for Jamaica will also serve as that community’s final step in becoming part of the Red Cross Local Disaster Shelter Initiative, a program not tied to a Vermont Yankee response, but aimed at empowering communities to open a local disaster shelter when outside help is unavailable or delayed. While the May 31 session is focused on training Jamaica residents, all are welcome.
