Tickborne illnesses are on the rise and continue to present a public health challenge to the Rutland Community. Classically, education on tickborne disease has been provided by healthcare providers, specifically through primary care. However, many individuals still lack access to primary care providers and therefore are not being provided important information on these potentially debilitating illnesses. This project's goal is to provide information on tickborne illnesses to local businesses and outdoor organizations so that those who lack access to primary care are still getting the education they need.
