The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health, Communicable Disease Branch is excited to announce the annual “Fight the Bite!” campaign. We want you to help us educate North Carolinians about the prevention of vector-borne diseases by ‘fighting the bite!’ Ticks and mosquitoes cause a great deal of illness in North Carolina, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease and La Crosse Encephalitis. We invite all K-12 students across the state to create and submit an educational poster that may be used in this statewide campaign. We hope your participation will be both fun and a valuable learning experience.
