The bacteria responsible for Lyme disease and the crippling effects on more than 300,000 people per year. The spirochete that causes Lyme disease was discovered by Burgdorfer in 1982. His discovery has saved countless lives, spawned more research and explained very unexplainable symptoms for patients. The loss of this incredible researcher is felt throughout the Lyme community. #Founder #Burgdorfer
Fall is a great time of year. Not the time of year you hear about the risks of tick bites and the bacteria they carry that causes illness. The tick is looking for it’s last meal before settling in for winter. Be aware of the tiny vampires in leaves and present during other outdoor activities.
