Raising awareness about Lyme disease
During the last week of this session of Parliament, Elizabeth May introduced a private members bill to address some of the issues Canadians with Lyme disease face. Many Canadians have complained that they were not properly diagnosed and treated for this disease. It is transmitted by ticks.
Eline Brock-Sanheim was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2009. She wants more people to know about the condition and she is holding a talk this Saturday night in Quebec City. She joined us in studio. We also hear from a specialist in Lyme disease, Dr. Nick Ogden.
