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! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFEMRu3m3qM
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 has worked with Fairfax County Health Department over the years on various tick-borne disease initiatives such as the “Learning The Latest on Lyme” disease program, collaboration of literature and various public awareness events.
