Lyme Disease

Thursday, April 24 at 8pm

Each year an estimated three hundred thousand Americans are diagnosed with Lyme disease. If the diagnosis is confirmed early enough, the disease can be treated with short-term antibiotics. But if Lyme goes untreated, symptoms can progress. On the next Conversations LIVE our panel of experts will continue our discussion on Lyme disease with a focus on symptoms, diagnosis and treatment in humans. They'll also take YOUR questions.

You can join the conversation. Call 1-800-543-8242 during the show, or email connect@wpsu.org. You can also join the discussion on twitter. Find us under the address @WPSU and use #WPSUConversations.
