Gov. Corbett signs Lyme prevention bill

The Times of Chester County, Chester County, Pennsylvania
Last week, Gov. Tom Corbett signed The Lyme and Related Tick-Borne Disease Surveillance, Education, Prevention Act, which adds a number of new weapons in the fight against Lyme Disease – and an effort championed by many in the Chester County area, including the Chester/Delaware County Farm Bureau.
The bill includes the first tick surveillance program in Pennsylvania, educational access for affected school children, a prevention focus in the schools regarding childrens’ tick bites on school property, and a new task force to provide recommendations to enhance prevention, educate doctors on current research on these emerging diseases, improve the patient experience, and provide access to more appropriate care in the commonwealth.
