Tick and Lyme Disease Education

Go Back to Public Health Nurse

Our goal is to intensify awareness about ticks and Lyme disease in an area endemic to the disease.

All public and private schools in the county are offered a free 30 minute educational presentation which is appropriate for the grade level. Educational presentations are also offered to any community group throughout the region.

New to the program is a 30 minute power point presentation for a teacher in service aimed at raising awareness of Lyme disease in the educational setting.
