“Debunking the Myth & Misinformation Surrounding Lyme Disease”
The Amherst Garden Club will be sponsoring jointly with Amherst Recreation an evening program on Lyme disease at the theater at Souhegan High School on Tuesday, October 21 at 7:00 pm. David A. Hunter will be the speaker. A Bedford, NH, resident, he has been a long time Lyme activist, advocating for patients on both the state and local level. In 2010, he was featured in a WMUR-TV Chronicle program entitled Lyme: New Hampshire’s Exploding Epidemic. He has served on the NH Lyme Legislature Committee that worked on the Lyme bill and got it passed into law.
Please help us pass the word about this free event to neighbors and friends who might be interested. It seems like we all know someone affected by this disease. We are encouraging teachers, gardeners, sport team coaches, hikers, and anyone who spends any time outside to attend and to be more aware of this disease and its effect on children and adults.
