Dutchess County Department of Health Community Tick Survey In Progress

Poughkeepsie…  Dutchess County Department of Health is conducting a county-wide randomized telephone survey to assess the knowledge and experience of community members with respect to Lyme disease and other diseases carried by ticks.

“Results of the survey will be used to inform educational efforts to better meet the needs of the community,” said Kari Reiber, MD, Commissioner of Health.  “We appreciate residents taking a few moments of their time to share their valuable input.”

The telephone survey will be conducted through the end of December.
