BREWER – A day long conference on Lyme disease takes place this Saturday in Brewer.
The 2019 Lyme Awareness, Prevention and Education Conference will be held at the Brewer Community School Performing Arts Center.
The public information session aims to educate the public about the disease, focusing on pediatric Lyme disease.
MaineLyme’s past president says the group of experts will address dealing with the disease, especially in children, so that it doesn’t become even more serious.
“Obviously, early treatment, early recognition and good treatment is what we aim for” says Happy Dickey of MaineLyme “but we’re missing a lot of it, so then when you have to deal with the chronic stuff, it becomes much more difficult”.
Doors for the conference open at 7:30 and registration begins at 8 AM Saturday.
The conference is free to attend, but space is limited.
