It’s summertime! Watch out for Lyme Disease!

On the last Tuesday in June, Samantha Bunsa, Health Educator with the Mount Olive Township Health Department, joined Morning Mike on RNJ to share valuable information about Lyme Disease. 96% of all Lyme disease cases reported to the United States Centers for Disease Control are within 14 states, primarily in the Northeast and upper Midwest. New Jersey sits smack-dab in the middle of that region. Samantha shared information on how Lyme disease is transmitted, what to look for in symptoms, treatment options, and how to protect yourself.
