Troublesome Ticks

In Australia many people get bitten by ticks every year.

There is uncertainty about why and how ticks make people unwell yet there are now thousands of patients suffering from fatigue, arthritis and chronic pain following a tick bite.

Collectively these illnesses are known as Debilitating Symptom Complexes Attributed to Ticks (DSCATT). Join Dr Charlotte Oskam to find out more about the little beasts and how best to avoid them.

This event is run in partnership with the Harry Butler Institute.
