Lyme Disease and Tick Borne Illnesses – Awareness and Prevention
May 4, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
This presentation by Bradley Tompkins, Vermont Department of Health Infectious Disease Epidemiologist & Program Chief, and Ellen Read, RN, will cover the basics of Lyme Disease, other tick-borne illnesses, and prevention education. Vermont has the second highest incidence of Lyme disease per capita in the USA. Living in Vermont means loving the outdoors, whether it is gardening, hiking, golfing, playing in the back yard, or camping. All of these activities and more put everyone at risk of getting bitten by an infected tick. Education, awareness, and prevention are important for all Vermonters!
