Ticks are generally found near the ground, in brushy or wooded areas. They can’t jump or fly. Instead, they climb tall grasses or shrubs and wait for you to brush against them. When this happens, they climb on and seek a site for attachment. Ticks can cause a number of diseases and some can be life-threatening.
Protect yourself from TICKS
- Use a repellent with at least 20 percent DEET, picaridin, or IR3535
- Dress in long-sleeved shirts, pants and socks when you’re outside.
- Shower as soon as possible after being outdoors.
Do frequent tick checks after being outdoors and remove attached ticks promptly by grasping with tweezers as close to the skin as possible and pulling straight out. Then watch for signs of illness such as fever/chills, aches and pains and/or a rash. If you have these symptoms, see your doctor immediately.

Annually, the first Friday in February UNMC College of Dentistry hosts a Dental Day for children across Nebraska. Public Health Solutions has partnered with UNMC to make sure that the uninsured and underinsured children of our district are able to get free dental work. The next Dental Day will be held on Friday, February 3rd, 2017. The deadline to apply is January 20th, 2017. To enroll your children, you can contact Public Health Solutions for more information, or you can fill out the application form and return it to our offices.
Once the form is filled out, signed, and received by Public Health Solutions, we will contact a local dental professional to set up a free pre-screening exam that is needed before the February 3rd clinic. The exam is very quick and simple, and will let the Dental College know your child’s dental needs.
The clinic will be held at the University’s East Campus (40th & Holdredge) in Lincoln and families need to check in at 8:00am. Parents will be able to wait in the clinic’s waiting room while the children are in the clinic or are doing fun and educational activities between treatments. Please be prepared to be there a full day, as some procedures may take a long time. Your child will be given lunch and there are vending machines in the building. Free coffee will be available, and there are also a few restaurants in the area.
If you need transportation, Public Health Solutions can try to help you, so please let us know!
