Summer is upon us, and with school out, families will be out and about in our national parks and elsewhere in the great outdoors. The Great Outdoors is, indeed, great, but there are risks, and they include more than falling off a cliff or encountering an irritable moose. Some of God’s smaller creatures, like the blacklegged tick pictured above, can carry diseases that have long-term consequences. One of these is Lyme Disease, first identified as such in the 1970’s in Old Lyme, Connecticut.

In this video, Joe Alton MD tell you all about the basics of Lyme Disease, and together with his last video on tick bites, will give you a sound fund of knowledge that will help you identify, treat, and prevent it.

Wishing you the best of health in good times or bad,

Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP
