This session will offer an overview of vector-borne diseases in our climate-changing world. Join us to learn about the impact of climate change as one factor that influences the spread of diseases carried by vectors such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Lyme disease, an example of a vector-borne disease that is increasing due to climate change, will also be discussed.
