Hidden in Plain Sight: Ticks & other potential health risks emerge as warm weather returns

Forty years ago, many clinical topics focused on infection and infectious diseases rather than cancer, genomics, and chronic illness—the subjects of much of today’s medical literature.

This issue of WMJ highlights tick-borne illnesses and other infectious diseases found in our region, serving as a reminder to readers of some of nature’s hidden dangers.
