Tick Borne Diseases in the Southeast - Virtual Program

The Forest Resources Research & Education Center
Oak Ridge
Thursday, June 24, 2021
7 - 8 pm

Anyone who spends time outdoors in warm weather needs to be aware of diseases that can be transmitted by ticks. Because ticks are so small, people might not even notice when they’ve been bitten by one. Sponsored by the UT Arboretum Society and the Tennessee Citizens for Wilderness Planning, Dr. Richard Gerhold will discuss the eco-epidemiology of tick-borne diseases in a Zoom presentation on Thursday, June 24th at 7:00 p.m.

Dr. Gerhold is an assistant professor of parasitology in the Department of Biomedical and Diagnostic Sciences at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Gerhold holds a B.S. in wildlife science and a DVM from Purdue University, as well as M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in veterinary pathology from the University of Georgia.
