Yesterday I heard yet another story of another local emergency room doc who insisted to the tick-bitten patient that we don’t have Lyme Disease here. Our own public health office would beg to differ.
Biologists would beg to differ too. These little critters are moving on the backs of birds, rodents, even reptiles.
We can’t keep our heads in the beautiful Michigan beach sand forever, or risk losing a generation to this awful disease. Now, how to educate our doctors? The Michigan Lyme Disease Association is putting together packets for docs of various specialties. Contact them to offer your support!
