TICK-BORNE DISEASE

Rebecca Zelis created ‘Collective Medicine’ (based on the work of Jeff Gomez) to address hierarchies in medical workplaces that are barriers to integrated health care.

Rebecca’s personal experience parenting a young child with neuroborreliosis – neurological Lyme disease – informs her work with medical providers, hospitals, schools, and individuals dedicated to building cultural environments that support well-being and healing.

Rebecca also presents to health providers and education professionals about the psychiatric and cognitive manifestations of tickborne illnesses, and about the ways acute and chronic diseases affect family systems.
