The Public Health Grand Rounds is a monthly webcast created to foster discussion on major public health issues. Each session focuses on key challenges related to a specific health topic, and explores cutting-edge scientific evidence and potential impact of different interventions. The Grand Rounds sessions also highlight how CDC and its partners are already addressing these challenges and discuss the recommendations for future research and practice.
Next Grand Rounds Presentation (Encore):
Lyme Disease: Challenges and Innovations
Tuesday, June 18, at 1 p.m. - 2 p.m., EDT
Lyme disease is one of the most rapidly emerging infectious diseases in North America and Europe. Named after a small Connecticut town, Lyme disease is transmitted to humans by the bite of ticks infected with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. This multi-system infection typically occurs in stages with different clinical manifestations at each stage. While it can be treated effectively with antibiotics, in some cases recovery may be incomplete - although there is no evidence that any of these post-Lyme disease syndromes respond to further courses of antibiotic therapy. Please join us for this encore presentation for a rare glimpse into the front lines of those battling and treating Lyme disease.
Future Grand Rounds topics include cancer screening.
