How to Protect Yourself from Tick-Borne Illnesses

At 7pm on Tuesday, September 25th, Tisbury Health Commissioner Michael Loberg, Tisbury Assistant Health Agent Maura Valley, and other Island health administrators and providers will all be on hand to discuss how to best protect oneself from tick-borne illnesses, and to share a  recently launched website from the Martha's Vineyard Boards of Health. 

This site provides the information necessary to minimize TBI exposure, to recognize its early symptoms, if exposed, and to seek prompt effective therapy, if symptomatic. This site also contains data currently being collected throughout our county, including Naushon. The Island Boards of Health will be developing recommendations based on these findings and presenting them to the Island's Boards of Selectmen in early 2013.
