The Diane Rehm Show  

Around 300,000 people contract the tick borne disease every year. We discuss what you should know about contracting, diagnosing and treating Lyme disease.

This should be an interesting show.  Neil Spector, author of "Gone In A Heartbeat: A Physician's Search For True Healing," and Dr. John Aucott should have some interesting commentary.

Around 300,000 new cases of Lyme Disease are reported every year. And experts say the areas the tick borne disease is found is expanding. An update on contracting, diagnosing and treating Lyme disease.
