On Thursday, Aug. 25 at 6:30 p.m., Dr. Bea Szantyr will give a slide-talk on Lyme disease and tick-borne illness at the Rockland Public Library.

Szantyr will discuss how to keep one and one’s family safe while enjoying the outdoors. Szantyr’s exploration of Lyme disease and other chronic debilitating illnesses began more than 15 years ago and now consists of thousands of hours in related activities. Szantyr has lectured throughout Maine and New England on Lyme disease and associated tick–borne disorders. Included will be updated information from the Maine Center for Disease Control DC as well as information on other tick-borne diseases that occur in Maine.

Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made with 48 hours notice. Please call the library at 594-0310.

This is part of a continuing series of literary, film and cultural offerings sponsored by the Rockland Public Library & the Friends of the Rockland Public Library.
