Tick-Borne Disease – What You Need to Know

Friday, July 27, 2018, 12 Noon

Chances are that you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with Lyme or another tick-borne disease.  Rebecca Young, RN, BSN, MS, a member of the Medical Advisory Panel of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Regional 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 tick removal kit.

There will be ample time for Q & A to address any concerns.

Southampton Hospital does these very important lectures as a community outreach service and for this we are very grateful. 

This workshop will be offered to all free of charge.

However, we need participants to RSVP so that there will be enough kits and literature on hand for all attendees.

Location:  John LoGerfo Library, Bridgehampton Community House, School Street entrance.
