Team TickEncounter traveled to Stamford, CT to participate in the Race Against Lyme 5k with our Prevention Partner, Lyme Research Alliance. We all had fun and had some interesting conversations. The Tick Guy even finished first in his age group! We encourage everyone to check out our Facebook page and send pics around to your family and friends.
Warm weather is back and experts say now is the time to prepare for the upcoming tick season. To help raise awareness about how to lower the rate of tick bites and Lyme disease, U.S. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) today joined Thomas Mather, director of the University of Rhode Island's (URI) TickEncounter Resource Center, and David Mendell, a tick control expert with Bartlett Tree, to kick-off the 2013 Get TickSmart/RI campaign.
