Lyme disease is the number one vector-borne disease in America, so why are Lyme and other tick-borne infections often misdiagnosed? Join us for a talk about the ecology of Lyme disease with Lyme expert Kathie Fife, who will share her knowledge and experiences as a patient of Lyme, natural resource specialist, and patient advocate. We’ll find out why tick populations and rates of tick-borne diseases are increasing every year, and we’ll look at how land use, essential predators, and wildlife behavior play a significant role in ecosystem and human health. We’ll close with a discussion about the Lyme disease testing bill Kathie wrote, which was signed into law by Governor Chris Sununu. Bring a friend and your questions!

10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Harris Center. Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information, including questions about accessibility, contact Susie Spikol.
