9/27 EVENT: Understanding Lyme & Other Tick-Borne Diseases

Kathy SpreenCome out to listen to Physician, author, and Lyme patient, Dr. Kathy Spreen! She will be sharing her wealth of knowledge on the subject of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases like Bartonella, Anaplasmosis, and Babesia. Afterwards, she will showcase her recently published textbook, Compendium of Tick-Borne Disease: A Thousand Pearls which is a wonderfully comprehensive compilation of all the latest research, explanation of diagnostic approaches and treatment options as well as alternative management plans.

I have read many books, articles, and research- but I have found this book to be head and shoulders above everything else! It was written for the healthcare professional, the patient, and family/caregiver as well. She does a fantastic job of providing the information sought at various levels. Dr. Spreen is seeking to educate physicians and patients alike and will offer her book at this event at 50% the price listed on (see here) because she understands the risks posed by tick-borne illnesses.
