Dr. Neil Spector Speaks at Focus on Lyme 2017

Top Lyme Awareness door Dr. Neil Spector, top kankerspecialist in US, en Lyme ervaringsdeskundige. Hij moest een harttransplantatie ondergaan door Lyme Disease. De diagnose bleef lang uit, en hij werd lang niet geloofd door zijn collega’s, zoals het voor de meeste patiënten het geval is. Hier spreekt hij over wat er kan gedaan worden voor Lyme Disease Awareness en het onderzoek ernaar, wat in tegenstelling tot kankeronderzoek, totnutoe summier is.

“Lyme and Reason” nominated for 3 Emmy awards

New York television station Fox5NY, has been nominated for three Emmy awards related to its groundbreaking program “Lyme & Reason: The Cause & Consequence of Lyme Disease,” which first aired on June 30, 2016.

FOX 5 Special: LYME & REASON

“LYME AND REASON: THE CAUSE AND CONSEQUENCE OF LYME DISEASE” presents an in-depth look at the cause and effect of Lyme disease, including the controversy over testing, the issues of misdiagnosis, and the personal struggles of medical professionals and patients contending with this life-changing illness. -Brian A.

The first nomination is for the entire 22-minute special report, which discusses the causes and effects of Lyme disease, controversies over testing and misdiagnosis, and the personal struggles of patients and medical professionals.

The second nomination is for one segment of that program, “Gone in a Heartbeat.” It features Dr. Neil Specter, whose undiagnosed Lyme disease damaged his heart so much that he needed a transplant.

The third nomination is in the category of “Interactivity.” After the original story aired, Fox5NY extended its impact in ways that reverberated for a long time, across the country and around the world.

The station posted the program itself on YouTube, so that it is available to anyone. Then it took the unusual step of posting many of the original interviews in their entirety. That’s almost three hours of additional material.

Furthermore, the station entered into a long dialogue with viewers via Facebook and email, receiving more than 3,000 messages about the program in just the first few days after it aired.

Fox5NY even allowed Dr. Steven Phillips to respond on its Facebook page to statements made on the program by the CDC that the ILADS physician thought were misleading. (The station offered the same opportunity to the CDC, who didn’t take them up on it.)

Joe Silvestri, producer of the special, said the Emmy nominations have been gratifying. “Recognition such as this is an honor since it also serves as a way to raise much needed awareness about a very important issue.”

(Note: Fox5NY did a second special report about Lyme disease that aired in November, 2016, called “Lyme and Reason 2.0: The Voices of Change.” Because of the timing of the award application process, it will be eligible to be nominated next year.)

LYME & REASON 2.0: LYME DISEASE & THE VOICES OF CHANGE

A follow-up to the groundbreaking LYME & REASON: THE CAUSE & CONSEQUENCE OF LYME DISEASE, “The Voices of Change” focuses on the use of social media as a tool to inform and open the door to change on the Lyme disease front, and how patients, advocates, physicians and others are moving the conversation forward.

Ticked Off: The Mystery Of Lyme Disease (2014)

The tick that carries Lyme disease has been spreading across Canada with alarming speed. From the micro world of the tick and its disease-causing bacteria, to the macro world of human infection, Ticked Off explores a disease that can have devastating effects, is often misdiagnosed and mistreated, and continues to be mired in a medical controversy.

Zeer goede reportage over lyme: gebrekkige testen, dokters die licenties dreigen te verliezen,  klimaatopwarming, polarisatie, honden die beter af zijn dan mensen,…
