Lyme disease talk planned

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Local Lyme disease educator and advocate Emily Bracale, with guest Dr. Blake Rosso, will talk about Lyme disease at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Tuesday, June 26, from 5:30-7 p.m.

Bracale will present selected slides from her fundamentals of Lyme workshop, as well as information gathered at state Lyme awareness conferences, the nonprofit and the Lyme Disease Association. She has been an advocate for Lyme awareness locally since 2009 and has presented at several Lyme conferences in Maine. Rosso, of 54 Herrick Integrated Medicine, also a Lyme survivor, will join in the discussion.

Bracale’s educational art exhibit and book, “In the Lyme-Light: Portraits of Illness and Healing,” have helped raise awareness of Lyme, giving voice to what thousands of other patients have experienced. Her half-day workshop, The Fundamentals of Lyme, has helped over 40 local doctors, nurses, body workers, therapists and holistic healers learn more about how to support their patients. Visit

This presentation is free and open to the public. Call the library at 244-7065.
