Mike Adam will update us on the rise of Lyme disease near Chicago and what we can do to protect against ticks.

Mike Adam is the Senior Biologist for the Lake County Health Department. He supervises various programs including water quality monitoring, swimming beaches and pools, wildlife diseases, and vector management. He coordinates Lake County’s tick and mosquito surveillance program and has collaborated with other scientists in the State investigating the emerging issue of tick-borne diseases. He has a BS from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and a MS from University of Kentucky.

MUSEUM TOUR: Come early for a narrated tour of the museum. The tour will begin at 6:30pm; 1 hour before our IMA meetings on all of the days we have meetings there. So, if you cannot make the tour for the next meeting, maybe you can make it for a later IMA meeting date. No worries, if you get there a little late, we will direct you to where the tour has progressed. The tour is FREE. Niles Historical and Cultural Center is a 501 (C3) non-profit, any small donations are gladly accepted. You will not be disappointed you came a little early to make time for the tour.

A note on our location:
Niles Historical Center is about a tenth of a mile Southeast from the Golf-Mill Shopping center. The former sheriff’s office has parking adjacent to the building. The meeting room is on the third floor and is accessible by elevator as well as a large staircase. Restrooms are available on first and third floors. A museum volunteer will open the building for us Monday evening. For public transport from the city, take the Blue Line to the Jefferson Park CTA Station, from there it is 20 minutes on the PACE #270 bus to Milwaukee and Elizabeth. The museum is open to the public Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
