Establishing a Lyme disease diagnosis remains a considerable challenge, as many symptoms are nonspecific and there are currently no definitive diagnostic tests available. This represents a significant clinical problem, as the number of Lyme disease cases in the U.S. is steadily increasing. This activity presents and discusses recent advances in the management of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
This educational activity was developed in partnership by Global Lyme Alliance and the State of Delaware Lyme Disease Education Oversight Board.
Fashion designer and GLA board member Ally Hilfiger talks with brave teens who are living with Lyme disease and shares valuable tips to avoid tick bites and Lyme disease prevention.
