Segment A:  Lyme Disease
Outdoor enthusiasts heading into the woods this spring in Virginia parks and forests will be at higher risk than usual of coming down with Lyme disease. On today's broadcast, we'll learn how a bountiful acorn crop in 2010 has led to an increase in Lyme-carrying ticks. We'll also talk with a local doctor about ways to protect your family from this threat, what to look for if there has been a tick bite, the importance of getting quick medical attention.
