Our research explores how these tick borne diseases affect the health of humans. The more we understand these diseases, the better we can assign treatment modalities to patients. Our ID division is seeking to increase patient access to specialists in infectious diseases with complicated tick-borne diseases, especially Lyme disease. With the. Tick populations are increasing in the United States and their geographic ranges are expanding, largely due to climate change. Since ticks are responsible for nearly 95% of annually reported vector-borne diseases, this increase represents a new and severe public health concern.
