Acting Secretary of Health Visits the 40th Senatorial District

This week, acting Secretary of Health, Dr. Deb Bogen and members of the Depts. of Health and Environmental Protection visited East Stroudsburg University and the PA Tick Research Lab to learn more about the amazing work and research they do for our Commonwealth.

I know many of you, like me, truly value the outstanding work of the Tick Research Lab – they continue to contribute valuable research to the scientific community and also provide information to Pennsylvania residents who find a tick on them.

Have you been bitten by a tick? Visit to analyze the tick for Lyme and Tick-Borne diseases. I worked diligently to make this service FREE for Pennsylvania residents.
