Emerging Tickborne Diseases
CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds Presents:
“Emerging Tickborne Diseases”
Tuesday, March 21, 2017
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET
Infections from tickborne diseases in the US are steadily increasing — and new tickborne diseases have been discovered in recent years. Ticks are vectors that can carry infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, or parasites. When an infected tick bites a person or an animal, the tick’s saliva transmits infectious agents that can cause illness. Some ticks can transmit multiple diseases. These “co-infections” pose challenges for diagnosing, treating and preventing tickborne diseases.
