Lyme Disease – Rick Dahlman

Rick Dahlman, a retired MN DNR forester, has been living with the effects of Lyme disease for over 30 years. As a forester he was constantly exposed to Deer Ticks (Ixodes scapularis) and unfortunately, one transmitted Lyme Disease to him. Though he never had the typical rash, the persistent headaches, severe and chronic pains and fatigue and some mobility have plagued him. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted through the bite of tick, known in Minnesota as the Deer Tick and in Wisconsin as the Bear tick. Rick is now the chairman of the Minnesota Lyme Association’s Speakers Bureau and travels around the state educating people on how to reduce their risk of tick-borne diseases. Rick will have good advice for us all.
