Yahoo News interviews Dill about babesiosis

Griffin Dill, manager of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Tick Lab, spoke to Yahoo News about the rise of the tick-borne illness babesiosis in the Northeast. “I think awareness is kind of the key there. We don’t want people to be afraid of these illnesses and … prevent people from going outdoors and enjoying outdoor activities. But be aware and take some precautions when recreating outside,” Dill said.
