Ticks in our Town: What every Northeasterner needs to know

Join Dr. Amanda Roome, Bassett Research Institute, for a conversation and Q &A on ticks and how to prepare for summer. 

Everyone’s ready to get outside –– especially this year. If the spread of tick-borne disease has you worried, you’re not alone. But before you miss the beauty of the great Northeast in spring, let’s turn to science to explore:

  • Tick-borne diseases in our area
  • Seasonal hazards of exposure
  • Risk factors of Lyme disease
  • How to work safely outdoors
  • The role that deer and opossums play

Enjoy this science pub from the comfort of your home.
RSVP HERE. 

Guest Speaker:

Dr. Amanda Roome is a Research Scientist at the Bassett Research Institute in Cooperstown, NY.  She has performed extensive field and laboratory research on tick-borne diseases in New York State since 2012, and has recently begun expanding her research throughout the Northeast.  Her research explores the risk of exposure to Lyme and other tick-borne pathogens, risk factors associated with Lyme infection, quality of life changes resulting from acute or chronic Lyme infection, and the occupational hazards of tick-borne disease exposure in forestry workers.
