Lyme disease is one of the most commonly known tick-borne illnesses. In 2019, 34,945 confirmed and probable cases were reported to the CDC. This lecture aims to give participants practical information on what to look for in terms of signs and symptoms of Lyme disease for early diagnosis and treatment, as well as preventative techniques. While this presentation will focus mostly on Lyme disease, other tick-borne diseases of interest for Pennsylvanians will be covered.

Malu received her Medical Degree from the University of Geneva, Switzerland and her Master’s in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK. She is currently the human health expert of the Vector-borne Disease team at Penn State Extension.
