Episode 102: Slyme – an interview with Jenna Luché-Thayer


Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Jenna Luché-Thayer. Ms. Luché-Thayer is the 59-year-old founder and director of the Ad Hoc Committee for Health Equity in ICD11 Borreliosis Codes, and she’s from Florida. She first experienced the symptoms of a tick disease in 1976, when she was just 16 years old. She had a fever, extreme fatigue, joint pain, and Bell’s palsy. Her illness came and went, but it took over 35 years for Ms. Luché-Thayer to receive a Lyme diagnosis. This expert brilliantly details what it is like to be a woman on the Lyme journey. If you would like to learn more about the amazing work that Ms. Luché-Thayer has done to give back to the Lyme community since her diagnosis, then tune in now!
