Lyme disease in Alberta
Original Air Date: Friday, July 11, 2014
We’re hearing the story of one Alberta woman’s life-changing battle against Lyme disease before speaking with Alberta’s top doctor on the controversy around the disease and if enough is being done to treat those suffering. Is Lyme in Alberta? And how will a new federal framework change the way it’s treated?
Lisa Robertson and her mother Bette Sinclair share with us the story of Lisa’s experience with Lyme disease before we further the discussion with Susan McInnis, from the Lyme Disease Association of Alberta, and Dr. James Talbot, Chief Medical Officer of Health.
