@projectlyme is honored to have @carrieperrytv as our Ambassador, spreading #lymediseaseawarness wherever she goes! This time, she had a chance to talk to @jmichaelsnews @weatherchannel about Lyme disease prevention! Getting the word out is so important!πŸ’šπŸ’š Thank you so much Carrie for all that you do!πŸ’šπŸ‘ THIS IS BIG!

We couldn't pass up the chance to share this beautiful Green Line Jasper and White Quartz bracelet created by @theonyxfeather. Not only is it gorgeous but @theonyxfeather donates $5 for each bracelet sold to @projectlyme. πŸ’šπŸ’š Thank you so much @theonyxfeather for your talent and your amazing support as we work on #lymedisease awareness and prevention. You're right...ticks show no mercy. πŸ’š

It's still May and that means we're still talkin' ticks and safety. With over 300,000 cases of Lyme disease reported every year, there are a lot of needs (better testing, more awareness, a vaccine) and only recently have we seen a nationwide conversation about #lymedisease and tick-borne diseases even as Lyme disease has become the most prolific zoonotic disease in the U.S. Thank you for your voices, for your commitment to telling your stories and to being heard.πŸ’šπŸ’š #talkaboutticks

It's getting to be that time again and since it's #lymediseaseawarenessmonth we thought it'd be a good time to remind you to get your kiddo's clothing and packs ready for outdoor living. Treat clothing (including shoes and socks) with permethrin or buy some t-shirts from @insectshield. You can even send in clothing to be treated, which is very cool. Check your/their list twice and don't forget their favorite bear. :) #talkaboutticks

Thinking of going hiking? Maybe just a long walk with the dog? Sure hope you're staying on path and avoiding those high grasses. You are, right? Great. Now, have you sprayed your shoes and socks with Permethrin? Use it. Really. Spray your picnic blanket too. We want everyone to enjoy the nice days AND BE SAFE! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ‘

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. Visit projectlyme.org to learn the symptoms, and don't forget to check for ticks after every outdoor adventure. #projectlyme #MayICheckYouForTicks

Wow! Talk about getting word out. @projectlyme founder, @hchearst and @drelenafrid are talking ticks and awareness inside the May issues of @cosmopolitan, @womansdaymag, @harpersbazaarus and @oprahmagazine! #lymediseaseawareness is key to preventing and treating #lymedisease. Thank you for ALL YOUR VOICES! Collectively, we are are stronger. Keep spreading the word and pick up a copy of these mags. Oh, and keep up those tick checks because ticks are biting, and the devastation they leave behind is awful. Let us all #talkaboutticks!

The truth is, you might not even notice those ticks climbing up your pant leg or crawling into your hair, chances are you won't feel them biting you either. That's why it's so important to treat your clothing with permethrin, use DEET, wear light-colored clothing, and do your tick checks. The danger isn't so much in the woods as in your own backyard. With the warmer weather comes the nasty ticks. This year, a lot of them. And ticks πŸ’š kids. Yeah. Kids are at a higher risk of getting #lymedisease so be aware. Know how to do a thorough tick check on your pets, your kiddos and yourself. These vectors mean business. #talksboutticks
