Although it was only the second annual of the Lyme Awareness briefing and cocktail reception, it was well attended with more than 100 people, some coming as far away as Canada, according to a press release.

One of the attendees was Montville's Mike Jacoby. On Sept. 25, the showroom at Mercedes-Benz of White Plains was filled for the event hosted by Lyme Research Alliance.

Proceeds from the event go to fund Lyme and other tick-borne disease research. Attendees listened to talks given by Dr. Kenneth Liegner and Kim Lewis, Ph.D. followed by a Q&A period.

Liegner, a Pawling, NY internist, has been actively involved with the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and related disorders for 25 years.

Lewis, of Northeastern University, discussed  what new treatments Lyme sufferers can expect to see coming out of the research labs in the near future.

“Encouraging things are happening with Lyme research,” said Liegner.
