Click on the video above to play.

Our resources include:

I. Lyme Disease: The Diagnostic Dilemma- An effective tool to help recognize Lyme and other tick-borne diseases that are prevalent in your community. Learn about the difficulty in diagnosing Lyme disease from a nationally recognized group of experts, featuring Richard Horowitz, MD, former Assistant Director of Medicine, Vassar Brothers Hospital and Brian Fallon, MD, MPH Assistant Professor Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Director of Columbia Lyme Disease Research Center. Available in DVD and Video.


II. Curriculum - A curriculum about tick-borne diseases for grades K, 3, 6 and 9 with age appropriate goals, activities and measurable guidelines. The curriculum includes tick awareness, prevention tips, proper tick removal, and the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease. The curriculum is designed for use in elementary school (grades K and 3), middle school (grade 6) and high school (grade 9). The K and 3rd grade programs focus on what ticks look like, where they live, and what to do if you find a tick with activities designed to ensure understanding of the program. The 6th grade program introduces more sophisticated concepts of prevention which is also delivered in a 22 minute DVD. The 9th grade program adds a discussion of the psychological, emotional and social ramifications of Lyme disease, best described in the words of the high school students through a 20 minute DVD, specifically designed to address this complex issue. Our hope is that education will prevent Lyme disease in those who are well, and promote empathy, understanding and compassion for those who are struggling to overcome their illness.

III. Information Packet- A general packet of information about Lyme Disease symptoms, diagnosis and prevention as well as sources for further information.
