From The Underground:
Dear Landscape Professional:
Please join us for this very important educational program "Lyme Disease: Prevention, Treatment and Management for Landscape Professionals and Gardeners" on Saturday, April 12. Registration for this program is $25
Learn about steps that concerned landscape professionals and gardeners can take to lower their likelihood of infection. Lyme disease is an increasing threat to those who work in the landscape, with New England ranking among the highest rates per capita and Massachusetts now fourth in the nation in total cases reported. The disease and its possible co-infections have many forms, and if left untreated can cause a major impact on a victim's life and work. This forum provides the latest information on the disease itself - how it is transmitted, its range of symptoms, accurate and timely diagnosis, acute vs. chronic phases, and medical treatment options. This program is co-sponsored with The New England Wild Flower Society and carries credits for NOFA AOLCPs.
Guest Panelists: Pat Smith, President of the Lyme Disease Association; Jeanne Hubbuch, M.D., Newton, MA; Rolf Briggs, President of Tree Specialists, Holliston, MA; and Dori Smith, owner Gardens for Life, Acton, MA.
