TICK TALK WITH TODD GIOMBETTI, MD FAAP

As warm weather arrives, it's time to think about protecting yourself and your family from tick-borne illnesses. Local pediatrician from Giombetti and Brady Pediatrics will share tips on how to prevent tick bites, spot signs of tick-borne illness, when to call your doctor, and what to expect with testing and treatment. There will also be time for Q&A with the doctor. After the talk, enjoy a self-guided walk on 445 acres of preserved fields, forests, and wetlands.
