SPONSOR & VENDOR
LymeBytes™ Symposium is being organized and hosted by Dr Myriah Hinchey and TAO: Center for Vitality, Longevity and Optimal Health LLC.
LymeBytes™ Symposium was created with the intention of raising awareness of Lyme disease not only in the medical community but also in the Lyme patients’ personal community.
Our goal is to bring those affected by Lyme disease out of isolation through
- Quality education for themselves, their families, and their practitioners;
- Building a supportive healing community with Lyme-literate practitioners, industry experts, and fellow Lyme warriors;
- Connecting Lyme patients with financial resources for treatment through nonprofit organizations.
Now, more than ever, those battling Lyme disease require a robust community and outside-of-the-box thinking to effectively heal themselves and live vibrantly.
The 2022 LymeBytes™ Symposium is uniquely positioned to offer both to patients, students, and practitioners over one immersive weekend.
Months of Pre-Event Interaction
In addition to the LIVE virtual and in-person learning, and networking opportunities presented throughout the weekend and beyond, LymeBytesTM will be offering exciting engagement opportunities in the months leading up to the live event, such as a sponsored virtual scavenger hunt to win prizes and symposium registration, delivered through our conference app.
LymeBytes™ Symposium Weekend
For two days, vendors will be able to interact closely with physician, student, and patient attendees both in the exhibitor area and during meals and social events. Although the Symposium is full of engaging lecture content, we have included ample vendor and stretch breaks to maximize socialization and networking and encourage all registrants to attend our fundraising cocktail reception on Saturday evening.
Charity Cocktail Hour Saturday Night
On Saturday evening, immediately following the day’s final lecture, we will be hosting a cocktail reception to raise awareness and funds for Lyme Warrior, a national charity which provides patient treatment grants, research grants, and Kids Smile Boxes to those affected by Lyme disease. Because this nonprofit is also focused on providing resources and community-building opportunities for Lyme patients, their families, and their communities…. LymeBytesTM Symposium is proud to support Lyme Warrior’s efforts with this Charity Cocktail Hour.
LymeBytesTM Symposium welcomes all who are heavily invested in the integrative management of Lyme disease. This year’s symposium is appropriate for physicians and students interested in Lyme literacy, and for patients who have not found success with the conventional management of Lyme and are looking for a way to better direct their own care. We also welcome the partners, families, and caregivers of those affected by Lyme, as they are essential members of an effective support network.
