Tick Seminars Upcoming
The Minnesota Department of Health warns tiny ticks are a big problem in Minnesota.
A growing number of people across the band of northern counties of Aitkin, Beltrami, Carlton, Cass, Crow Wing, and Hubbard are becoming ill from diseases carried by the black-legged tick, commonly known as a deer tick.
The Crow Wing County Health Division and Essentia Health are sponsoring a Tick Mitigation Campaign. The Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Foundation will offer two community health panels on July 16-17. Experts will discuss the diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne diseases and what can be done to reduce risk.
Community Health Panels are July 16, 5:30-7 p.m., and July 17, 8:30-10 a.m. at the Northland Arboretum,.
