Lyme Connection, run by the Ridgefield Lyme Disease Task Force, facilitates free, ongoing support groups for Lyme disease patients and their families. The evening group meets on the second Thursday of each month from 5 to 7 at the RVNA offices, second floor, 90 East Ridge. The afternoon group meets in the same location on the second Friday of each month from 1:30 to 3 and focuses on wellness practices. A third group for teenage girls is being planned for the fall. It will meet on eight Saturdays starting Sept. 13 at the offices of Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge. The program is free, but registration is required. Check the website for updates and guest speakers.
