Tick-Borne Diseases: A Public Health Crisis
Tune-in to the TBDA Forum
Join us via live stream this Monday, March 11 at 10:45 a.m. for a special forum to discuss the impact of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
TBDA is pleased to join with U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) as well as Weill Cornell Medical College to host the forum, which aims to raise awareness and build support in the fight against the silent epidemic of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
A satellite hearing will also be held at Ulster Community College in Stone Ridge, New York.
The forum will include a panel of doctors, experts, and patients who will offer their insight in ways to combat Lyme and other tick-borne diseases:
