Lyme disease presentation – CanLyme, Penticton, BC, March, 2013

Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation president Jim Wilson presents to the Penticton Museum in the City of Penticton, BC. 

“Because public speaking is not something I do regularly, here are some mis-speaks on my part in this presentation –

– I mentioned the borrelia bacteria can survive in the blood for 48 months… no, 48 days.

– I said Dr. Banerjee was Head of the BC CDC… no, he was Head of Vector Borne Disease at the BC CDC.

– Another mis-speak was that the ticks survive the washing machine, and dryer quite well…. but they do not survive the dryer as they are very sensitive to dry heat. ”
