NatCapLyme was pleased to present “What You Need to Know About Lyme & Tick-borne Diseases” at a special event arranged by Eagle Scout Colin Jackson. Part of Colin’s requirement to receive his Eagle badge was to do an awareness program that would educate his community about ticks and how to avoid their bite.
Colin presented his own story of how he was bitten by a tick on a scouting camping trip and the journey he as been on to restore his health ever since. His troop and scout master, along with family and friends, were there in support of Colin.

NatCapLyme applauds our very own local Fairfax County, VA, Health Department for the creation of such a meaningful and creative prevention video for the public!
Fairfax County Health Department’s Andy Zima is a biologist by profession but for many he’s better known as MC Bugg-Z. Andy’s latest rap video, Tick Check 1-2, cautions viewers to the dangers of Lyme disease and demonstrates the best ways to avoid being bitten in the first place; all done with humor and head-nodding beats.
