Tick Time

A wide range of media have been reporting on the early onset of the tick season this year, and most of those stories are mentioning the University's tick expert Tom Mather.  Recently he was featured at a "tick town hall meeting" in upstate New York, which resulted in media coverage in television stations WYNN and WNYT as well as in the Gloversville Leader Herald.  He was also featured in the Washington Post and on a radio station in Amarillo, Tex., and his research was mentioned on WPRO and in media outlets in Maine, Massachusetts, and Maryland.  In addition, Mather was featured in the April issue of Veterinary Practice News and in an upcoming issue of Rhode Island Monthly.
