About the host
I grew up in the Hudson Valley in New York, loving hiking and being out in nature. It was 24 years ago when I became sick with Lyme disease. I am also the parent of a child with a chronic condition. My personal experiences and work as a healthcare professional have added to my passion to be a greater advocate for families and individuals with chronic conditions. I am grateful for this opportunity to join The Center for Chronic Illness as a MSW intern.

I've learned so much about Long Covid from attending this group over the past year. Thank you so much Alison for bringing all the valuable information and resources to help us recover from the long term impacts of Covid <3

Alison was good, though seemed a bit inexperienced and hesitant. I am confident she will become an excellent facilitator with more time and practice. She is good enough that I wouldn't mind being part of her practice groups. I really appreciated that she was our substitute tonight, as I know it's a holiday week.

Alison is absolutely amazing. She is calm, patient, attentive and presents with caring demeanor. She encourages you to share if you feel comfortable. Definitely a blessing and asset in these difficult times.
