We are pleased to announce that as of January 1, 2012, the new Hampton Roads Chapter Director and NatCapLyme board member is Connie Kee. Connie will be leading the monthly support group meetings in Hampton Roads. With a background in community service in both health education and dental hygiene practice and education including serving on the faculties of Old Dominion University and East Tennessee State University, Connie is committed to patient support, advocacy and education. Currently, Connie is a Lifeforming Life Coach encouraging and assisting others in pursuing their destiny and dreams.
As one who has been on the lyme journey for many years, Connie has understanding and empathy for those who have the disease and for those who are caregivers. Her generous spirit and servant's heart inspire her to help patients in their search for information about Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. She is also committed to raising awareness within Hampton Roads about the threat of tick-borne infections in Southeastern Virginia as well as identifying patient and caregiver needs throughout the area.
A note from Connie: I am very excited about this new year and the opportunity to support the Hampton Roads lyme community and the Hampton Roads Chapter of NatCapLyme as we walk along this path together. This path of lyme disease is full of bumps, curves, and uphill battles but I am full of HOPE for each one of us, whether we are lyme disease/other tick borne diseases patients or caregivers. I am full of HOPE that 2012 is going to be a year of great encouragement and advancement in lyme disease awareness, education, and treatment in Hampton Roads.
