 Learning About Lyme Disease with Angela Newnam

A big thank you to Biltmore Forest resident Angela Newnam for sharing her educational presentation on Lyme disease for a second time!  

When enjoying our beautiful outdoor setting, we and our pets encounter ticks almost year-round.  Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne illness (ticks, mosquitoes, etc.)  in the US.  Buncombe County is categorized by the CDC as “Endemic” for Lyme disease.  Our Town is proactively addressing this issue.  

Angela Newnam, and several other Biltmore Forest residents who have first-hand experience with Lyme disease, share their real and varying stories as part of this program to increase awareness of the disease, its symptoms, myths and misconceptions and most importantly prevention. Learn the steps that you can take to protect yourself, your pets and your yard as well as the measures planned by the Town of Biltmore Forest. 

If you missed the live presentation, you can stream the recording through this link.
