The Lyme Action Network presents
Professor Holly Ahern
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT LYME AND OTHER TICK-BORNE DISEASES
What You NEED to Know About Lyme and Tick-borne Diseases, presented by SUNY Adirondack Associate Professor of Microbiology, Holly Ahern, will draw from peer-reviewed, published research to explain the nature of the pathogens that are carried by ticks, strategies to avoid tick bites, the problems with diagnostic tests, and treatment issues and options.
Professor Ahern is co-founder and Vice-President of the Lyme Action Network. She also serves as science advisor to a number of other tick-borne disease research and advocacy organizations around the country, and was recently appointed to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Working Group on Lyme and Tick-borne Diseases – Subcommittee for Testing and Diagnostics, where she is working with experts representing ALL perspectives to develop better solutions for the victims of tick-borne diseases. She is also a member of Governor Cuomo’s Tick-borne Disease Working Group. Prof. Ahern’s encyclopedic knowledge about the microbiology of the pathogens carried by ticks and the body of research conducted in this field over the past 40 years has made her an “opinion leader”, a sought-after speaker, and consultant. Prof. Ahern is frequently called upon to explain the complex microbiology of tick-borne diseases to medical professionals, business executives, the general public, and the media, helping to clarify common misunderstandings that plague this topic. Professor Ahern has presented testimony to legislators and legislative bodies at both state and federal levels seeking to focus attention on the massive problems being created by a universally unsatisfactory response to a disease of epidemic proportions, and the critical need to reform a medical paradigm that has failed the victims.
Her video series, Lyme Bites, on the Lyme Action Network’s YouTube channel has been viewed by thousands of people around the globe. www.youtube.com/user/LymeActionNetwork
The presentations are free and open to the public.
