Tickborne Illness

Environmental Health

Ticks can be important carriers of a number of diseases that can make people sick. Investigators interview people infected with these diseases so they can educate them on how to prevent tick bites and to determine where they were exposed, allowing epidemiologists to target prevention education efforts.

Visit the Florida Department of Health Tickborne Diseases webpage for more information.
