With vacation season now upon us, this Friday’s note is more of a Public Service Announcement. BEWARE of TICKS!

I’ve battled tick-borne illness a time or two and, with new U.S. cases exceeding 300,000 each year, it’s time to take this seriously. There are at least 17 different tick-borne diseases out there and, while Lyme disease gets the majority of the press, illnesses like ehrlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever are just as dangerous. With that in mind, here are a few resource links to help keep you, your family and your staff healthy as we all head to the great outdoors this summer.
