We’ve updated the information regarding the Vector Borne Infection Awareness Night and wanted to make sure that all of our followers received the latest information.
NC Lyme Advocacy Presents Vector Borne Infection Awareness Night Featuring Award Winning Documentary: Under Our Skin on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at the Johnston County Agricultural Center* (please see note at bottom regarding location)
Doors to the auditorium will open at 5:30 for registration. An educational presentation will begin promptly at 6PM by Dr. Mike Waldvogel. Dr. Waldvogel serves as the Extension Specialist and Extension Associate Professor at NC State University in the Entomology Department. He also serves as Director of Structural Pest Management Training & Research Facility. The presentation will be 45 minutes long about ticks and mosquitoes. Dr. Waldvogel will cover their life cycles, habitats where they live and how to prevent bites.
Stay tuned for more itinerary information. The first 30 people that RSVP in attendance will receive a reserved baggie of information and one free tick tool gift sponsored by IgeneX. Registration gives us an idea of how many to plan for, but no one will be turned away at the door for lack of RSVP.
The Address is 2736 NC Highway 210, Smithfield, NC 27577* Note from Amie. The map that is used by Google does not have our office listed in the right location. If you use Mapquest or a GPS then they will take you to our office if you put in 2736 NC Highway 210, Smithfield, NC 27577.
If however you use Google maps or a GPS which runs off their system then you have to put in the address for 2640 NC Highway 210, Smithfield, NC 27577. They don’t know why this happens and they’ve tried to fix it, but that should take you tot he right spot if your GPS uses google maps.
