    Abstract

    This report for the Nantucket Tick-borne Disease Committee was created to help improve public communication concerning ticks and tick-borne diseases on the island of Nantucket. Based on findings from background research, interviews and a survey administered to the students of Nantucket High School, the project team crafted recommendations for a multi-pronged communication strategy based on the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of the townspeople. The team developed a health-risk communication strategy which targets specific audiences through diverse communication channels.
