Lyme Awareness Event at the Waukesha County Fair

Wisconsin Lyme Network would like to give a huge thank you to Tasha Ventimiglia for coordinating our Lyme Awareness Event at the Waukesha County Fair on Sunday July 20th. It was a very successful event and we helped many individuals. We would like to extend a thank you to Tasha's sister Molly Nogalski and her wonderful parents Sally and Bob for all their help. The WLN is so grateful to have you on our team. 

Debra Muth gave a presentation that was very informative regarding lyme and coinfections and we are grateful to have her in our corner educating others through awareness and assisting those with Lyme Disease. 

Also, we would like to thank Tasha's Co workers, neighbors and family who attended the event and supported our cause. Here's a few pictures from Sunday's event. 


The WLN is very grateful to have had such generous sponsors at this event. Our sponsors generousity greatly helps support the WLN's mission to raise awareness, provide education, support and promote research for vector borne illness to the patients, medical community and the general population of Wisconsin. It is with their support that we can aide in making necessary change in our state to a growing epidemic that is greatly under recognized. These funds will help us recruit more practitioners to become educated on this complex and misunderstood disease.

Thanks again everyone. Job well done.

Last year the CDC announced incidents of Lyme Disease have risen from 30,000 to 300,000 cases a year. 96% of those come from 13 states, WI being one of them.

Please join us in our efforts to help educate the public about this emerging epidemic in our state. Lyme Disease is very often confused with other diseases and is frequently misdiagnosed.

We hope to see you at this great event for a very important cause!
