No: Lyme is a disease that is spread by the bites of tics to humans. The only way to prevent lyme disease is to use proper insect repellant ( with deet ) to avoid getting bitten by the tics. If you are in wooded areas or areas where lyme is prevalent, make sure when you get home you check yourself and all others in your family for tics embedded in your skin. Remove them as soon as possible.

Screen all toddlers: It is recommended that all toddlers receive a screening for autism/developmental problems at 18 months of age and again at 24-30 months of age. Theses screens are done by your pediatrician and followed up by them. Early diagnosis can lead to early treatment and better outcomes for autism and other developmental problems.

Sports physicals-tee: In my pediatric office, we like to have the teen fill out the form-eitehr alone or with their parent. It is very important for teens to start to understand their own health, medical problems, nutritional concerns, supplements, injuries, etc. Having them fill out the form and going over it with them starts to get them to look at their own health better.
