LymeTV is currently filming a new Lyme documentary.  This film will highlight the advances in Lyme disease research, as well as the science behind Lyme tests, how the disease & other co-infections disseminate, & the dangers of long-term damage to the host body. In addition, the film will feature the hurdles that many Lyme patients face trying to get proper care & early diagnosis.  All of us at LymeTV are very excited about the incredible interviews & are honored to work with such a great team to share necessary information on the topic.  This documentary will be a free public health informational film, & LymeTV will never charge viewers to watch it.

Tick Talk Health Education for Schools

Children are at the greatest risk for Lyme disease & other tick-borne diseases (with age group 5-9 years old having the highest incidence). LymeTV has developed educational materials to teach kids how to prevent a tick bite.  Our Tick Jedi program teaches kids how to avoid ticks, check for ticks, & the basics of Lyme disease. Prevention is key!

LymeTV's age-appropriate workbooks & prevention posters engage kids with fun activities that also teach them about tick protection.  It’s a great resource for schools & other organizations to educate & remind kids & staff how to protect themselves from a tick bite.

LECTURES

Lecture Hall

Lectures for Colleges & Businesses

The most proactive way to reduce the prevalence of tick-borne diseases is through awareness & prevention. LymeTV provides free lectures to schools & businesses wanting to educate their students or employees about the dangers of ticks & the diseases they can transmit. For now, our in-person lectures are available only in the State of Maine & the surrounding New England region.

Information Disseminated to Doctors

The most successful way to reduce tick-borne diseases from doing maximum damage to the host body is to diagnose early & to treat properly.  LymeTV connects doctor offices with research & educational material, globally, to help keep the staff abreast of early diagnosis criteria & much-overlooked co-infection information.  Together, we can help prevent multitudes of patients from being underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed, which may lead to patient deterioration if all agents are not identified &/or not treated early or successfully.
