- Problems with Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Diseases
Massachusetts and New England are among the areas in the U.S. that have the highest incidence of tick-borne Lyme disease. And there are approximately 30,000 confirmed cases of Lyme disease nationwide each year. Sandra Bonzagni will share her journey with tick-borne diseases by telling about the difficulties in testing for them, in getting a diagnosis and in being treated, plus the controversy surrounding them. Information will be given about co-infections, such as Babesiosis and Anaplasmosis. There will be time for a question and answer session and handouts will be available.
Sandra Bonzagni collaborates with the Acton Health Department and the Acton Schools on tick-borne education. She is a member of the Middlesex Tick Task Force which developed a tick survey and received a grant for free tick testing for Lyme, Anaplasmosis and Babesiosis for 3 counties and 32 towns in Massachusetts.
Tuesday, March 24 at 7:00PM
Presented by the Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF) with the co-sponsorship of the Southborough Board of Health. Program is free and open to the public.
