This Lyme Support Group reformed as the Greater Vancouver Lyme Group in 2018.
In 2019 we changed our name to encompass all of BC and hopefully act as an umbrella group for other Lyme organizations within BC. The group meets monthly in New Westminster on the third Wednesday of each month.
BCLyme is registered as a non-profit society in British Columbia.
We are an informal group attended by Lyme sufferers and advocates. Attendance is free and open to all. The group invites prominent guest speakers and shares current information on all aspects of Lyme Disease.
BC Lyme has several prominent speakers scheduled to speak to date in 2019, including Jim Wilson, Canlyme, investigative journalist & author, Mary Beth Pfeiffer and Aparna Taylor ND, a representative from ILADS (International Lyme & Associated Diseases Society)
In 2018, our featured speaker was Dr Ernie Murakami M.D. Clinical Associate Professor Emeritus, UBC.
