Lyme Disease Prevention and Infection

The State of Wisconsin is in the top 5 most infected states with Lyme Disease.  Half of all ticks in endemic areas carry Lyme Disease.  Lately, every year seems like a “bad tick year”.  How do we prevent our families and pets from getting an infection?  Prevention is key!  When there is a tick bite what should we do?  How can you find out if you have a Lyme Infection?  Most tick-borne infections are difficult to test for and produce mostly false negatives. 

​Join Jean Schneider of Nativa Medica at the library Wednesday, June 27 at 6:30 p.m. for an hour-long exploration of Lyme Disease, tick-borne infections, how to prevent these infections and what to do if you get an infection.  According to the CDC, this is reaching epidemic levels with more than 25,000 new reported cases of disease every month!
