By Staff | Sep 30, 2011

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s October program at the National Conservation Training Center will focus on Lyme disease.

The program will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, in Room 151 of the Instructional West Building. The event is free and open to the public.

The speaker will be Dr. Jennifer Cox Janus, a board-certified internist and pediatrician who practices as a primary care physician at Johns Hopkins Community Physicians in Hagerstown.

Her talk will cover the epidemiology, presentation, diagnosis and prevention and treatment of Lyme disease. She will briefly discuss other tick-borne diseases as time permits.

Janus received her M.D. from the University of Maryland School of Medicine and completed her residency at the University of Michigan Health System.

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is a United Way of the Eastern Panhandle partner agency and a member of the Combined Federal Campaign.
