As the number of reported cases of Lyme disease on Nova Scotia’s South Shore continues to rise, so too does public concern.
That’s why hundreds of residents and medical professionals gathered in Bridgewater this weekend for the Bridgewater Lyme Disease Conference.
“When you look at the map of infected areas, this province is becoming more and more infected,” says Yvonne Mosley of the Lunenburg Lyme Association.
Conference organizer Yvonne Mosley became a Lyme disease awareness advocate after her husband was diagnosed with the disease and died two years ago.
“After his tissue was tested, they found that he had Lyme disease in every organ in his body, so that’s indicative I’d say,” says Mosley.
