Rep. Antonio Delgado (D-Rhinebeck) announced Jan. 29 that he is joining the bipartisan Congressional Lyme Disease Caucus. “The prevalence of Lyme disease in Upstate New York requires significant, bipartisan action, and I’m proud to be joining the Lyme Disease Caucus,” the Democrat representing the 19th Congressional District said. “I look forward to working with leaders on this issue in Upstate New York—as well as my fellow Members of Congress—to advance federal support for how doctors treat it and how we decrease environmental risks. Indeed, the National Science Foundation has declared Lyme Disease an emerging global pandemic due to climate change.”
