Lyme blockers

People from the Lyme Education Awareness Foundation talk with kids and adults at the Stowe Parks and Recreation Department on Monday because Vermont ranks second in the nation in reported cases of Lyme disease. Nationally, about 300,000 new cases are reported every year. There’s no definitive test for the disease and no known cure, so LEAF focuses on preventing the disease, and gets children well-acquainted with the ticks that spread it.
