Summer is here – and so are the ticks!

Ticks haven’t received the memo about being socially distanced this summer! Professor Leu will report back on his and his students’ research and provide critical information and explanation on why there has been such an “uptick” in recent years.

Alumni, parents, family and friends are welcome to join the conversation. Time will be available for Q&A.
