Lisa loves animals and has dogs, rats, cats, guinea pigs, and snakes. She is passionate about animal rescue and live music - traveling across the country to see a favorite band is a pretty regular occurrence! Being out hiking in the woods enjoying the scenery with her beloved dogs is another favorite hobby, and also checking out the Pokemon Go scene in whatever city she happens to be in at any given time (coffee and dog leash in hand).

New Yorkers, be wary! Experts are predicting that this year’s summer will bring about a lot of unwanted visitors: ticks. While winter was snowy, we had a pretty warm spring, so there are expected to be more ticks than usual this year. When enjoying the warm weather, be careful that you do not bring home any unwelcome stragglers!
If you find a tick and wish to have it tested for pathogens, the Thangamani Lab is happy to help! Visit their website for more information. For additional information about ticks and tick-borne disease, check out the Centers for Disease Control website.
