Does anyone have any experience reporting on Lyme disease? I would be keen also to hear from anyone who has been involved in media coverage of links between climate change and emerging infectious disease.
Thanks for your reply. 'Lyme Aware' is actually a friend of mine - I introduced her to the network. She coordinates lyme awareness campaigns from Victoria (Canada) and we're trying to explore ways of generating media attention. Lyme is a tick-borne bacteria - disabling to people who are infected - and it is enjoying more and more human hosts here in North America, thanks to climate change.
