Lindsay Veremi, host of WEAU 13 News in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, interviewed Bobbi Pritt, M.D., Director of the Clinical Parasitology Laboratory at Mayo Clinic, about the “ABCs of Ticks.”

Developed by Mayo Clinic's Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology and its reference laboratory Mayo Medical Laboratories, “The ABCs of Ticks” flash cards provide an interactive learning experience.

"People are always asking questions about ticks, how do I avoid them, how can I avoid tick-borne diseases," said Dr. Pritt. "So we wanted to create easy-to-follow ABCs about ticks."

Pritt says the series of interactive, online flash cards provide the facts in a fun, memorable way. View the flash cards.
