STOP LYME: Information for Tick-Borne Disease Prevention, Identification and Patient Care
The STOP LYME Project is a collection of resources designed to educate the public about the prevention and treatment of tick borne diseases in Massachusetts. The Project is an initiative of Nahant Public Library in partnership with Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the Town of Nahant, and health librarian Margot Malachowski – who have provided the following materials to interested libraries such as ours.
