The TickEncounter Resource Center and NBC10 WJAR were pleased to present awards every year at the Big Tick Gala. These awards are given to individuals who have shown outstanding efforts in the fight against tick-borne disease and tick bite prevention.
We have asked people in the community to submit nomations to recognize individuals or groups who best demonstrate an effort or commitment in raising consciousness about ticks, their associated diseases, and especially taking action to prevent tick-borne disease. It's never too early to bring such people to our attention. If you would like to get involved in our mission, or make us aware of people who are contributing, we urge you Contact us.
