‘Tick Talk’ with Dr. Bea Szantyr: how to keep yourself and your family safe

Event has passed

The Rockland Public Library presents Dr. Bea Szantyr, Thursday, June 16, at 6:30 p.m., via Zoom. Szantyr will present a program about Lyme and how to keep yourself and your family safe while enjoying the outdoors.

This event is free and open to all.

Dr. Szantyr’s interest in Lyme disease and related tick-borne disorders began nearly two decades ago, and now consists of thousands of hours of continuing education and investigation. Included will be updated information from the Maine CDC, as well as information on other tick-borne diseases that occur in Maine.

Szantyr, a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and member of the American College of Physicians, has been board-certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics. She came to Maine over 30 years ago in fulfillment of a National Health Service Corps commitment. Through her private Medicine and Pediatrics practice in rural Maine, she has provided a broad range of clinical services in a variety of settings for people of all ages.

Szantyr is an active member of Maine CDC’s Vector Borne Disease Work Group as well as the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society, serving on the provider education working group to develop and present the full day evidence-based course on Lyme. She is the medical advisor for MaineLyme, a Maine-based nonprofit formed in 2010 and dedicated to decreasing the occurrence of Lyme and related tick-borne diseases in Maine through awareness, prevention, education and advocacy.

This event will take place over Zoom. There will also be seating available in the library’s Community Room to watch the Zoom call onscreen; the Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union Street.
