Every year, over 400,000 people are infected with the pathogen that causes Lyme disease.  If caught early and appropriately treated, many cases of Lyme disease can be cured, but a very significant number of cases are not diagnosed quickly, misdiagnosed, denied, or ignored, allowing the disease to flourish and wreak havoc in the body. Because much misinformation plagues the topic, it is important to stay up to date regarding both fundamental and more advanced information coming from Lyme researchers.  In this presentation for the Lake George Land Conservancy, Professor Holly Ahern, Associate Professor of Microbiology, SUNY Adirondack, offers basic information as well as updates on new findings and promising new technologies that are giving us hope for an accurate diagnostic in the very near future.

Coming this fall…


The CDC recognizes more than 400,000 new cases  of Lyme disease each year.  The population cohort suffering the greatest impact of diseases carried by ticks are children, as their lifestyles place them at greatest risk – they play on the ground, in the woods, in leaves, with pets, and are generally closer to places where ticks lurk – awaiting their next meal.  

Recognizing Lyme disease in children can be a very difficult task as the symptoms in children can differ significantly from adult symptoms, and young children often are unable to explain what’s bothering them. 

Nurse Practitioner, Natasha RUiz, NP-C will offer a presentation on what every parent and teacher should know about pediatric Lyme disease.  

Natasha will discuss sign, symptoms, and treatments.  Lyme disease can trigger PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndroms) and PANDAS (Pediatric Auaatoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep, and she will offer information on these conditions.
