Program Presenter: Representative from the Resource Center
Chances are that you or someone you know has been diagnosed with Lyme or another tick-borne disease. A member of the Medical Advisory Panel of Southampton Hospital’s Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center will speak about the types of diseases that are carried by the different species of ticks found on Eastern Long Island and the symptoms, diagnostic tests, and treatment options that are available. Tips on preventing tick bites will also be shared. Each attendee will receive a free tick- removal kit. There will be ample time for Q and A.
The Regional Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital educates the public, promotes collaboration in the medical community, and facilitates access to diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne diseases.
