Tick Awareness

Tick-borne infections are preventable… awareness is the first step to action. Lyme can be serious if not diagnosed and treated early. Ticks are a state-wide risk. A recent PA Environmental Protection study reported Lyme and other tick-borne diseases in all 67 counties. PA has led the nation in new cases. PA Lyme Resource Network is working with the Pennsylvania Department of Health to implement a state-wide, community-based Lyme & tick-borne disease prevention program. You’ll learn how to prevent tick bites and Lyme & tick-borne diseases, act if bitten by a tick, recognize early symptoms, where to seek help if you get sick and much more.
