With the warmer weather ticks will make their appearance again, and with them comes the threat of Lyme Disease. Visit the Nesmith Library on Tuesday, March 24 at 6 PM, when David Hunter will present, Ticks and Lyme Disease: From Prevention to Treatment. Some of the topics David will cover are: testing, diagnosis, co-infections, imitator illnesses, and the impact of Lyme on children.

David Hunter has been a long-time Lyme activist, advocating for patients on both the state and local level in Connecticut for seven years. He was Chairman of the Committee for Education Reform for Children with Lyme Disease (CERCLD), and was also Chairman of the Tribury Lyme Disease Task Force and facilitator for the Tribury Lyme Disease Support Group in Southbury, Connecticut. He was a member of the Connecticut Lyme Disease Coalition, as well. Throughout his years of advocacy, David has given numerous Lyme presentations in an effort to raise public awareness and correct the many myths and misunderstandings that are associated with Lyme disease. He has also helped thousands of patients sort through their symptoms and illness and helped guide them to proper, more effective care.

Now a New Hampshire resident of ten years, David is continuing his Lyme efforts in his new home state. He is facilitator for the Greater Manchester Lyme Disease Support Group, and he is also Chairman of the Bedford Lyme Disease Council. In 2010 & 2011, he served on the New Hampshire Lyme Legislation Committee that worked on the Lyme bill and got it passed into law. He was featured in the NH Chronicle program in July 2010 entitled Living with Lyme: New Hampshire’s Exploding Epidemic. He also served on the New Hampshire House Lyme Disease Subcommittee and helped steward a second Lyme bill through to passage in 2015.

Generously sponsored by F.L.O.W, this program is for ages 16 and up, and registration is required. Register by filling out the form on this page, and please call the library at (603) 432-7154 with any questions.
