Pittsfield Healthcare Rally

The Lyme Alliance is happy to be a co-sponsor of a rally in support of equal access to healthcare and against the repeal/decimation of currently installed insurance programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. We also feel that to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act, rather than reform it is a waste of time. Not to mention there are many other issues plaguing healthcare, that the singular focus on repealing is ridiculous. Healthcare is also being abused as an issue of partisan politics, where it does not belong!

Saturday, February 25th, 2017
1 to 2 PM
Park Square Historic District
2 E St, Pittsfield, MA

It doesn't matter what side of the aisle your are on, healthcare is a right, not a privilege! The decimation of the already unsteady and tumultuous American healthcare system is not what we need right now!

What about:

Regulations on the prices of medical care and prescriptions?

The influence of insurance companies on medical decisions?

Returning the power of choice to the patient and doctor?

The USA's conversion to a symptom management for profit system versus proper treatment for disease resolution?

Examining the preferential treatment of the Infectious Diseases Society of America's Lyme guidelines by the medical establishment, despite supposed freedom of choice?

Examining the toxic relationships between some non-profit organizations and taxpayer funded government agencies, such as the Infectious Diseases of America and the CDC?

Why are these issues being ignored?

Holiday Break.

The Lyme Alliance of the Berkshires is going to be offline for a little while over the rest of month and quite a bit during the holidays. Our site and downloadable items will still be up, it's just the people running the place won't be around. We will only be checking our messages periodically. After a busy busy year of events and hard work we are taking the time to absorb life and enjoy our families. Thank you for all your support this year. See you soon!
