New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean G. Skelos named Senator Sue Serino,R-Hyde Park, Dutchess County, as the new chair of the Senate Task Force on Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases on Wednesday. The goal of the Task Force is to increase prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses for New York residents.
“Senator Serino not only represents a region that has some of the highest rates of Lyme disease in the country, but her family has also been directly affected,” Senator Skelos said. “She will provide the leadership to continue the Senate’s efforts to prevent the disease from affecting others and help those already afflicted.”
