    Thanks to Jennifer McQuiston for all her excellent work on Rocky Mtn Spotted Fever and other tick-borne illnesses. I was diagnosed with RMSF this summer, and thanks to CDC’s expertise and research, I quickly learned about the etiology, treatment, and prognosis for the disease. I was able to understand my prospects for recovery.

    Your work has impacted me and my health in a very visible way this summer…thank you!!
