Episode 37: Adina Bercowicz - Maine Lyme Disease Advocate - Lyme TV

May 5, 2021

Did you know that May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month? We had the chance to talk with Adina Bercowicz of LymeTV to learn more about her journey through treatment, how she started her non-profit to raise awareness of Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases, what we can all do to prevent tick bites, and more!



In 2013 Adina was very sick & was later diagnosed with late-stage Neurological Lyme disease & multiple co-infections which resulted in brain tissue damage & secondary diseases from a tick bite. Frustrated with the lack of scientific knowledge in the medical community about tick-borne diseases & proper treatments, she resolved to easily bring the information to the public to reduce the incidence of these diseases, one person & doctor at a time.  Adina has made it her duty to research & inform.  Her dedication to highlighting awareness birthed LymeTV. Adina served on the Department of Defense's FY19 Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs, Tick-Borne Disease Research Program as a scientific panel Consumer Reviewer.
