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.

NatCapLyme would like to express its sincere appreciation to the Colour Bar Studio, located in Vienna, VA, for their 4th Annual Cut-A-Thon fundraiser. We are so appreciative of the continued efforts of Tania Ferrel and her daughter, Karla Ferrel, both Lyme warriors, to bring awareness to the public about Lyme and tick-borne diseases. The event was a great success and lots of fun for everyone. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit education, awareness, and research through the work of NatCapLyme.
