Upcoming Outreaches

To meet members of the JDMLF and learn about how to protect yourself from Lyme disease and other tick borne illnesses, please visit us at the upcoming events. We look forward to talking to you!

PowerPoint Presentations
The John Fund, as part of it’s community outreach program, does provide a PowerPoint presentation of topics dealing with prevention, education and awareness of Lyme disease and other tick borne illnesses to individual groups, associations and organizations who are interested in learning more about this very important and timely health issue which is affecting the many who are exposed to these potentially devastating illnesses.
Our presentations are conducted by an all volunteer staff who can respond to your request to appear before your group or organization at an agreed upon time and location provided by you. The presentation material may be adjusted to address these topics on various levels (children, adults) and the time duration of one and one half hours may be modified to provide a more condensed or expanded version. Additional informational materials are also included for distribution to attendees.
If your group or organization would like further information or to schedule a PowerPoint at your location, please contact us via our email address; attention PowerPoint coordinator. Please be aware that because these services are provided by volunteers, such issues as audience size, travel distance and time of day for presentations could affect availability. This service is provided at no charge, but any amount of honorarium payable to the organization as a charitable donation is most appreciated.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Dr. Robert Bransfield, psychiatrist, presents on the behavior changes of people who become infected with Lyme on February 28, 2006 at the Jackson Municipal Building. Joining him was Dr. Martin Fried, who discussed the effects of Lyme on children; Dr. Emilia Eiras, who addressed the latest in diagnosis and treatment and Betty Markonas who spoke about Lyme awareness and prevention. Over 100 people were at the event, which was well-received by all in attendance that evening.

Riding in the Cockpit with Muriel


Grace McGuire, a long time Lyme sufferer, would like you all to know she will be taking her 1935 plane, a duplicate of Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Electra L-10E on the road from New Jersey to California to promote Lyme awareness and in memory of all those who have died from Lyme Disease. It was a long three week journey, but Grace and “Muriel” finally arrived safely in California in mid December, 2007. After a break, Grace is now resuming her efforts to restore “Muriel” to full flight ability. She wishes to thank everyone for their support and prayers. “Muriel’s” restoration is well on it’s way and the goal is in sight.
