Carey Goldberg hosts a talk on Lyme disease

As part of the WBUR news series “Living with Lyme: Where Do We Go from Here?” Carey Goldberg, co-host of the CommonHealth blog, moderated a panel discussion about the disease. Panelists included Dr. Thomas N. Mather, alias “The TickGuy,” who spoke about identifying the deer tick that carries Lyme and discussed ways of avoiding tick bites; State Rep. David Lynch, who discussed his efforts to create a state commission on Lyme disease; and Dr. Sheila Statlender, who recounted her family’s history with the disease and how it set her on a path of advocating for Lyme patients.

About 60 people attended the free meetup, which took place in the Fenway Health auditorium. The event was livestreamed on, and the video is archived here. To stay informed about upcoming WBUR events like this one, join our Meetup group or check our Events page regularly.
