SMALL BUGS, BIG PROBLEM!!!! (Lyme Conference in Saratoga Springs NY)

They have asked if we’d show our Lymenaide produced Lyme PSA’s and if I’d introduce them with a little info on them, so I will definitely be there.  Mom’s even going (her first Lyme support group of any type!)  So everyone else, with or without Lyme, if you want to learn more, this will be a great chance.  It will also give you a chance to ask ?’s of an area LLMD and his FNP.  Details on attached PDF file, you can get to it by clicking on the link.  Please spread the word and make it if you can!
