Topic: American Dog Ticks (Dermacentor variabilis) and Lonestar Ticks (Amblyomma americanum) and Associated Diseases:  While Lyme disease is now a household word and most of us realize that non-deer ticks do not transmit Lyme disease, we should be aware that there are other ticks and other tick-borne diseases of concern. These important diseases will be presented in context of their relative risk and measures to reduce those risks.
