The NJ Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance is having a lecture on July 28 with Dr B.
Robert C. Bransfield, MD
"Late Stage Lyme Disease as a Cause for Depression and Bipolar Disorder". Lyme can take years to diagnose. Often is undertreated or mistaken for something else. It can have brain involvement. Dr. Bransfield is an international expert. He is president of ILADS (International Lyme & Associated Disease Society). He will be the President of the NJ Psychiatric Association next year. He is a clinical psychiatrist and psychopharmacologist with an emphasis on treatment resistant cases. He earned his medical degree from the George Washington U. School of Medicine, residency in psychiatry at Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital. He has done ground-breaking research, treats many patients who have Lyme Disease and has authored many articles also in medical books. His practice is in Red Bank.
I spoke to the man running this and he said to please pass the info along. A small donation ($3) is appreciated, no registration needed.
