I NEED YOUR HELP FIGHTING LYME

Dear Friend,

I want to share with you a recently published editorial in the Poughkeepsie Journal, entitled “State must help doctors fight Lyme," which calls on the State Senate Health Committee to move my legislation, S.5520B, to help those suffering from Lyme Disease. My bill would protect a patient's right to be treated by their physician for long-term antibiotic therapy and protect physicians from disciplinary action for such treatment.
