New Book: Preventing Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Infections

Preventing Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Infections

Message from Author Bob Oley:

As a public health professional who has also had to deal with Lyme disease in my own family, I regard tick-borne infections as a grim medical crisis of staggering proportions. In a meaningful effort to help others avoid tick-borne infections, I have just published a book on prevention Preventing Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Infections. It is a concise (70 pages), easy to read narrative, and represents the culmination of countless hours of research, public speaking, and community outreach I have done on the subject. It covers a variety of topics ranging from how to avoid tick infested areas, clothing and skin tick repellents, what to do if you find a tick on you, a few basic facts about ticks, and much more.

Anyone who is familiar with Lyme disease knows that total avoidance of infection risks is close to impossible. Still, there are so many ways to be mindful and resourceful to make families safer from this growing epidemic. I strongly believe that infected people, with their compromised immune systems in particular, tend to underestimate the dangers of reinfection, and do not always respect the threats that every day living pose.

I do hope you find this book a helpful resource for your support group, and would be happy to answer any questions you or anyone else in your support group might have on the subject of prevention. I could also make myself available to speak before your group via Skype or FaceTime. I can be reached at
