Katina Makris, the author of Out of the Woods, is speaking to the Rotary Club of Providence on September 10, 2012.
A Lyme Cowboy (or Cow Girl) is someone who upon discovering Lymeville goes further; someone who stands on the precipice of the medical frontier, staring into the unknown, with dangers and death at the door. Much like the frontier people who moved west in early America, without knowing where to go, how to get there and how to survive along the way.
I am a Lyme Cow Girl and warrior, living in Lymeville and proud of it. There are others too. Lots of us trying to make a difference in the lives of so many.
