- Look at a balanced approach for the successful management of ticks and diseases from an ecosystem perspective. Call to action: Ask companies to use eco-friendly products for the successful management of ticks, including the lone star.
- Review the extent of under-diagnosed conditions and education of providers. What is the cost and repercussions from mis/undiagnosed properly due to lack of proper education?
