Many people wonder about Lyme disease and the culprit who transmitted it to us: the blacklegged tick.

How do you recognize a tick? How to protect yourself from it to avoid Lyme disease? What to do in the event of a tick bite? François Milord, medical consultant at the Montérégie Public Health Department and professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences at the University of Sherbrooke, will come to Dundee to demystify these little-known mites and this disease. He will also discuss the West Nile virus.

This conference will be offered in French, but Mr. Milord will be able to answer questions in English.
