  1. Hello Jill
    A very informative presentation of Lyme disease. Being a mother of two beautiful girls who enjoy playing outdoors and in the woods, I have gain much knowledge regarding this disease. Thank you.

  2. Thanks Geraldine! I am glad you enjoyed it. I chose this topic because I felt strongly that there was a gap in information available to this audience, especially in my county. One of the hardest things about this project was to take clinical and scientific terms and put into words the general public can understand. Take the symptom of “erythema migrans” for example. At first I used this term but then realized parents and teachers might be confused with migraines. That’s why I generalized the term to “bulls-eye” rash. This was a great lesson that taught me the importance of communication and knowing your audience.

    Best of luck,
    Jill
