Summer Hazard: Lyme Disease

July 09, 2018

Gary Wormser, M.D.No one can predict with certainty how bad this year’s tick season will be. However, a winter with lots of snow (like 2017-2018) typically means a boom in ticks by spring and summer, says Gary Wormser, MD,  director of the Lyme Disease Diagnostic Center, New York Medical College, Valhalla, and a spokesperson for the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Heavy snow, the experts, say, can serve as a ”quilt” for ticks lying in the leaves underneath it.

NYMC also has a very strong standardized patient program, which I believe made a huge impact on my clinical skills.
