Pfieffer speaks at Lyme info forum, Vestal, New York

October 15, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change, by Mary Beth Pfeiffer


Mary Beth Pfeiffer is an investigative journalist and author of a new book on tick-borne illness. In her book, “Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change,” Pfeiffer documents the spread of Lyme disease around the globe as ticks move to places they could not survive before. The disease infects half a million people in the US and Europe each year and thousands in many other countries.

Pfeiffer will discuss how she believes modern medicine has underestimated its danger by framing Lyme disease mistakenly, as easy to diagnose and straightforward to treat. Pfeiffer’s reporting, which is based on scores of interviews and a review of more than 300 scientific papers, won her the Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi award, among several honors for her articles on Lyme disease.

The book “Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change” will be available for purchase at the event. Mary Beth will be available after the event for book signings.

We hope you can join us for this informative event!
