I participated in my first Lyme activism event on September 19, 2014! The protest was for more complete reporting on the Lyme pandemic and was staged in front of the NY Times building as a symbolic statement. I was interviewed by the NY Times reporter on Infectious Diseases, Donald G. McNeil Jr. at the protest. Not sure how much impact we had but it felt good to be creating awareness with passer-bys.
