Since 2008, the Town has taken a series of initiatives to reduce the risk of contracting tick-borne disease on Islesboro and Seven Hundred Acre Island (Chronology). The Lyme Disease Research Committee, set up by the Health Center in that year, was succeeded by the Lyme Disease Prevention Committee, active in 2009/10. In April 2010 the Tick-Borne Disease Prevention Committee was established, producing a report and recommendations to the Selectmen in 2011. By 2014, when much more had been learned about tick-borne diseases, the current Tick-borne Disease Prevention Committee (T-bDPC), a sub-committee of the Islesboro Health Center Advisory Board, was formed.
Tick-borne Disease Prevention Committee
The committee is a sub-committee of the Islesboro Health Center Advisory Board.
The committee's mission is to collect and disseminate information to the Selectmen and to the Islesboro community-at-large about tick-borne disease and its prevention on Islesboro and elsewhere. We consider this website to be a vital part of our work.
