Experiences based on knowledge for safe habits when going outdoors and preventative care
The Lyme Education Awareness Foundation (LEAF) Program, Inc. 501(c)(3) serves communities with onsite educational experiences to promote prevention behaviors from tick-borne diseases in children, teens and young adults.
Each year an estimated 20% of 476,000 Lyme Disease cases are children ages 5 – 14. That’s 95,200 children experiencing Lyme Disease illness with symptoms that range from a rash to neuropsychiatric complications.
LEAF provided our campers with an entertaining and informative presentation about Lyme disease prevention. Our campers loved learning more about how to be safe here at camp and would love for them to come back next year for more prevention tips and tricks

Dr. Fox and her partner Cassidy came to visit our summer camp several times in 2019. Their presentations are extremely beneficial, presenting the information to our young campers in ways that were straightforward and easy to comprehend, even for children.

Wow! Ms. Cassidy Colbert did a great presentation for my 4th-grade students. She was very knowledgeable about Lyme Disease and answered many questions from the students. Cassidy had several visual aids and kept the students engaged with her engaging “fact or fiction” game. Ms. Colbert is an asset to our community and has my highest recommendation.
