Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses have spread across Massachusetts in the last 40 years and have become one of the region's most commonly reported infectious diseases. It's critical we learn how to prevent and treat these illnesses as we move into the summer season and spend more time outdoors.
This event will offer community members the chance to learn about prevention techniques and treatment options for tick-borne illnesses like Lyme disease and Babesiosis. If you are a parent, public safety professional, or a current or former patient you will not want to miss this free event.
Our speakers will include:
Director of the Bureau of Infectious Disease
Mass. Department of Public Health
Dr. Neven Zubcevik
Harvard Medical School
Co-Director, Dean Center for Tick Borne Illness.
Rep. Josh Cutler will also provide an update on some key changes regarding insurance company coverage of Lyme Disease that were recently approved in the House of Representatives.
Light lunch will be provided.
Co-Sponsored by Sen. Vinny deMacedo.
