Tick-Borne Illness - Rural Health Scholars Program

During the summer of 2011, a team of rural health scholars (nursing and pharmacy students from the University of Massachusetts) conducted 945 surveys on ferries, at the high school, at ESL classes and at local churches about tick-borne illness. The work complemented hours of interviews with Island health care workers and pharmacists also conducted by the students.

The video presentation below represents the results:
