Tickborne Diseases
Treating Tickborne Diseases this Summer

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported each year by state health departments and the District of Columbia.

The CDC conducted two studies to determine how many people in the United States are clinically diagnosed with tickborne diseases each year. The results showed that 329,000 (range 296,000 – 376,000) cases of Lyme disease occur annually in the United States. Most are concentrated in the Northeast and upper Midwest, with 14 states accounting for over 96 percent of cases reported to the CDC.

Fortunately, the CDC has created a few handy tools to help providers access accurate, comprehensive and updated information about the prevention, identification and treatment of tickborne diseases. One such tool is an electronic companion app, which is free for iOS and Android devices (data fees may apply).
