Though spring is a wonderful time to be outside enjoying vibrant green landscapes, mosquitoes and other biting insects make it a challenge to get outdoors for more than an hour at a time. As more cases of EEE and West Nile virus pop up in and around the granite state, avoiding mosquito bites may become essential for more than just dodging an itchy welt. Learn more about these blood borne pathogens as Dr. Alan Eaton discusses where cases of infected mosquitoes are being found, symptoms of the viruses, and how to reduce your risk of being infected. Join us for lunch on Thursday, May 8th from noon until one.
