Event description

Description

Featuring Jo Ellis: Director of Education & Outreach, Bay Area Lyme Foundation

Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne illness in the US. In its acute stages, Lyme is an uncomfortable but highly treatable disease. Undiagnosed, however, it becomes a devastatingly difficult illness that becomes increasingly hard to identify or to treat. Jo will share the latest research on Lyme disease and information on how we can all recreate safely in our open spaces and prevent infection.

Jo shares, “I know too many people whose lives have been derailed by Lyme. I love the outdoors and the stunning beauty of the Bay Area, but it is imperative that we are all informed and safe when we are outside in nature."

Jo Ellis has over 20 years of experience developing and marketing educational programming for schools, nonprofits, and corporations. Jo has worked at the Bay Area Lyme Foundation, the BBC, Stanford University, and Charles Schwab. A native of the UK, Jo earned a BA/MA from Cambridge University, and a post-graduate high-school teaching certification from the University of London. Jo is also a nationally recognized gifted and talented educator with Johns Hopkins University.
