Chances are that you, or someone you know, have been diagnosed with Lyme or another tick-borne disease. Tick populations have increased on the East End and illness caused by tick bites has become more common.
Dr. Max Minnerop, a physician-member of the medical advisory panel of Southampton Hospital’s Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center, will give a free talk at the Southold Library on May 11 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the topic of ticks and the diseases they carry.
Minnerop will discuss 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. There will be ample time for Q&A.
All attendees will receive a free tick removal kit.
