MANCHESTER- Tick-borne illnesses are a summertime concern for many families who spend time outdoors, and Catholic Medical Center and city officials are hoping to raise awareness about ticks with a special event next week.
To help people, especially children, identify ticks, the hospital will be distributing colorful wristbands that depict ticks so people can be on the lookout for them.
According to health officials, New Hampshire has the second highest rate of Lyme disease in the nation, a potentially serious illness that is spread by deer ticks.
Manchester's mayor and public health director will be at the city Public Health Department at 1528 Elm St. on Monday morning to meet with the hospital's chief medical officer and to discuss what doctors are seeing this summer and earlier this spring.
City officials also have declared next week as "Tick Awareness Week" in Manchester.
