Abstract

Lyme disease is a common issue in the Northeast United States, particularly in New Milford, Connecticut. Lyme is a readily treatable condition generally requiring a simple 2-3 week course of antibiotics. However, if patients cannot identify their symptoms and thus, do not come in for treatment, then that puts them at risk for developing chronic Lyme disease and fatal sequelae as a result. This project focuses on informing the local public about this issue by providing essential information regarding signs/symptoms, treatment, prophylaxis, and complications of Lyme disease.
