July 04, 2017

Standing in a grassy meadow Wednesday at Ward Acres Park, Sen. Charles Schumer called on federal officials to provide funding that could squash disease-carrying ticks. “As Americans spend more and more time enjoying the outdoors each year, we need more research to prevent and treat Lyme and other tick-borne diseases,” said Dr. Robert Amler, Dean of the School of Health Sciences and Practice at New York Medical College in Valhalla.
