KPLC Health Cast Bartonella Feature

KPLC and Fox 29, Lake Charles news stations, featured a local Louisiana family and their son's journey fighting a chronic Bartonella infection (Bartonellosis).  You can read more about it at the link provided.  A true One Health tale- a physician and a veterinarian put their heads together to solve a medical mystery and make a difference in hundreds of patients' lives. Please consider sharing this feature to continue to raise awareness of Bartonella and potential role it plays in chronic inflammatory conditions and disease. We are grateful for the coverage by KPLC and encourage other stations to feature Bartonella and other zoonotic and vector borne disease to spread awareness and benefit public health.
