Chances are that you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with Lyme or another tick-borne disease.  Jerry Simons, PA-C, a member of the Medical Advisory Panel of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Regional Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center, and an Assistant Professor at Stony Brook Medicine, 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.  Please contact your local library, or Cutchogue New Suffolk Free Library at (631) 734-6360 for a Zoom link. Sponsored by East End Libraries.
