Prevention is the Best Medicine!"

We will be discussing the best ways to prevent tick exposure and the steps to follow when a tick bite is discovered. Making the right decisions and being knowledgeable of accurate information is vital to preventing tick-borne diseases from occurring and for keeping infections from becoming a health crisis. Prevention truly is the best medicine!

Meeting will begin with group organizers making presentation and will be followed by time for questions and open discussion.

Attention Pittsfield, MA Residents!

Traditionally our group has met on the third Thursday of the month, however this has been in confrontation with Third Thursday, our local monthly street fair. We have changed dates to avoid confrontation with said event for the remainder of the season.
