LONDONDERRY, Vt. – On Saturday, July 27, 2019, from 1:30 to 3 p.m., Neighborhood Connections, Center for Health and Social Services in Londonderry, Vt., presents “Ticks Here, Ticks There…Ticks Everywhere!” We are excited to host Dr. Kenneth Liegner at The Meeting Place to discuss tick migration, diseases that they carry, and treatment modalities.
Dr. Kenneth Liegner is a board certified internist with additional training in pathology and critical care medicine, practicing in Pawling, N.Y. He has been actively involved in diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and related disorders since 1988. He has published articles on Lyme disease in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented poster abstracts and talks at national and international conferences on Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. He has cared for many persons seriously ill with chronic and neurologic Lyme disease. His work has focused on the serious morbidity and mortality that can eventuate from this aspect of the illness. He has emphasized the urgent need for widespread clinical availability of improved methods of diagnostic testing and for development of improved methods of treatment for Lyme disease in all its stages. He holds the first United States patent issued proposing application of acaricide to deer for area-wide control of deer-tick populations as a means of reducing the incidence of Lyme disease.
