Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., along with U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, have announced they will re-introduce legislation that would establish an advisory committee focusing on tick-borne diseases.
Words from our senators about Lyme:
Senator Gillibrand: “We need a better strategy than just checking our kids after a day at the park.”
Senator Blumenthal: “When the story of Lyme disease is written, it will be the story of patients standing up and being heard.”
” Dr. Patel noted that for all of the different opinions and theories out there, at the end of the day, “it comes down to the patient.” He spoke of medicine as a learned art, asserting that an experienced doctor will be able to go beyond textbook diagnosis, to understand his/her patient as a person and figure out the best methods to holistically treat that individual. “
