EAST STROUDSBURG – Rep. Rosemary M. Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) will be conducting a Lyme Disease and Tick-Borne Disease Prevention Seminar on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9:30-11 a.m., located at the East Stroudsburg University Innovation Center, 562 Independence Road, Room 336, East Stroudsburg.

“It is important for area residents to be informed about this disease and what precautions they should take to prevent getting bitten by a tick or what steps need to be taken should they get bitten,” said Brown. “Lyme disease is a very serious, chronic disease that affects many people not only in our area, but nationwide. This seminar will offer education on emerging information and what residents need to know for their families.”

This event will focus on prevention strategies, reducing tick bites and improved early diagnosis. Please be aware that this event is not intended for individuals already diagnosed with Lyme or other tick-borne illness.

During this seminar, Nicole Chinnici, ESU Northeast Wildlife DNA Laboratory director; and Jackie Zulli, vice president and director of Legislative Affairs and Policy for PA Lyme Resource Network, are slated to speak.

This is a free event, but those wishing to attend must register in advance by calling 570-420-8301 by Sept. 12. For more information, please contact Brown’s district office at 570-420-8301.
