This online talk will focus on tick bite awareness in the UK, the effects of lyme disease and how to prevent it. Lyme disease is now endemic throughout the UK, so awareness of ticks and how to prevent a bite is very important! Lyme disease can be an insidious illness if not diagnosed & treated promptly. Prevention is key to keeping yourself and your family safe.
There will be time for questions after the presentation.
