Insect Borne Diseases

Xia Lee is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Midwest Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Disease with a strong interest in the ecological dynamics of tick-borne disease. He directed a project with collaborators to investigate the effectiveness of host targeted acaricides in reducing ticks and the prevalence of the Lyme disease agent in questing ticks. This project utilized permethrin treated cotton balls that would be gathered and used as nesting material by white-footed mice to reduce tick burdens. For his PhD dissertation, he studied the host-seeking behavior of the blacklegged tick through repeated collections over a period of 24 hours. He has also collaborated with the Mayo Clinic investigating two newly emerging disease pathogens, Erhlicia muris eauclairensis and Borrelia mayonii.

The Academy offers, on average, twenty-five programs annually. There is no membership required for attendance at programs. All are FREE of charge and open to the general public. Programs are usually held at the Waupaca Area Public Library on Monday evenings at 6:30. Other venues and days of the week are occasionally used for special seminars and musical programs (e.g., churches, or other sites that can accommodate larger crowds). Some programs might include controversial subject matter, but the Academy takes no position and seeks to provide balanced and reliable information.

Stay a while.
