Effects of tick surveillance education on knowledge, attitudes, and practices of local health department employees



We developed and delivered in-person training at local health department offices in six of the seven Illinois Department of Public Health “health regions” between April-May of 2019. Pre-, post-, and six-month follow-up questionnaires on knowledge, attitudes, and practices with regards to tick surveillance were administered to training participants.
