NEVBD strives to connect professionals and community members across the Northeast with the knowledge, resources, and collaboration opportunities they need to effectively reduce vector populations and lower the risk of vector-borne diseases.
We monitor and address vector-borne disease issues in Northeast communities.
The Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases network of researchers, public health experts, and vector-borne disease professionals collaborate on applied research projects, professional training programs, and the sharing and creation of resources on mosquitoes, ticks, and the diseases they carry in our region.
NEVBD supports a bi-weekly newsletter - NEVBD Announcements - where we share updates on our program activities, applied research results, current vector-borne disease news, and job and training opportunities.
The TickApp is a smartphone app for people living in high-risk areas for Lyme disease, supported through our partners at Columbia University and the Midwest Center of Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases. Check out this app and learn more about how you can participate in our tick exposure behavioral study! Program now able to collaborate with local health agencies on passive surveillance.
