Dorothy Leland to discuss ticks and Lyme disease, Lower Lake, California
March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Dorothy Leland, Vice-president and Communications Director of LymeDisease.org, will address the monthly meeting of Redbud Audubon Society at 7 pm, March 19.
She will discuss matters of concern to people who spend a lot of time outdoors, bird-watching: How to recognize tick habitat, how to protect yourself from ticks, how to recognize early symptoms of tick-borne infections, how to find appropriate medical care when necessary.
Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections continue to spread. “The first step towards protecting yourself is to recognize that this is a problem that’s worthy of your time and attention,” Leland states. She will also discuss statewide and national issues related to Lyme and other tick-borne infections, and the advocacy work being done by LymeDisease.org.
