Joining Legislator Bolner will be representatives from the New York State Senate and Assembly, the Dutchess County Legislature’s commissioned Tick Task Force, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, Dutchess County Department of Health and Hudson Valley Lyme Disease Association.

“As Chairwoman of the Legislature’s Tick Task Force, I am all too aware of the prevalence of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases here in Dutchess County. The best way to limit and prevent Lyme disease is continued education and research to reduce the incidences of the disease. I hope residents will take advantage of the opportunity to learn from professionals at the forum on how to protect oneself from tick bites,” stated Bolner.
