Westborough: TACA to host Lyme disease treatment discussion

Westborough – Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) will host a free presentation Saturday, Aug. 1 on Lyme disease treatments and the changing understanding on this disease. The meeting will begin at 11 a.m. at Tatnuck Bookseller, 18 Lyman St.

 

The speaker will be Dr. Arthur Gertler of the D’Arcy Wellness Clinic in Natick. Dr. Gertler is a board certified gastroenterologist and internist who utilizes natural, holistic methods of treating illness, including Lyme disease. The presentation will discuss a variety of safe and gentle protocols to treat Lyme, as well as the full spectrum of chronic diseases and pain.

 

Lyme disease is diagnosed in 5,500 people from Massachusetts alone every year, yet little is understood or being done to address the long-term health fallout from the undiagnosed and undertreated symptoms. Due to the lack of dedicated state funding or comprehensive community awareness programs, the first Central Massachusetts Lyme Conference was held in Worcester this past March. Dr. Gertler was a presenter at this event where he spoke on a variety of safe and effective treatments to combat Lyme disease.

 

The meeting is free, but an RSVP is requested. Sign up by contact Mary Romaniec at Mary.Romaniec@tacanow.org. For more information on TACA, visit www.tacanow.org.

Hopkinton – The public is invited to the grand opening of Art on the Trail along the Hopkinton Center Trail Sunday, Aug. 2, from 2-4 p.m., for the unveiling of nine new sculpture installations. Created by residents of Hopkinton and nearby towns, some of the projects will be produced with the help of community groups such as the Michael Lisnow Respite Center, the Senior Center, Serenity House, and the Girl Scouts, with others contributed by individual artists. At 2:15 speakers will deliver introductory remarks at the Center Trail entrance across from Hopkinton Lumber, and at 2:45, the artists will accompany the group on a walk to visit each installation.

 

The exhibition will be on display through Sept. 26. During the exhibition, nearly 20 local poets, led by Polly Brown and Cheryl Perreault, will respond to the artwork with original poems they will compose en plein air. On Sept. 19, at 2 p.m., a poetry reading along the trail will feature these pieces, adding another dimension to the Art on the Trail.

 

The exhibition is made possible through a collaboration of the Upper Charles Trail Committee, Hopkinton Center for the Arts, the Hopkinton Area Land Trust, sculptor Michael Alfano, Cheryl Perreault, and Polly Brown. For more information, visit the Hopkinton Center for the Arts at www.hopartscenter.org/exhibits.
