Every year I like to have the City of Pittsfield's Public Health Nurse, Kayla Donnelly Winters, as a guest on City Talk to discuss Tick Borne Illness and how we can all protect ourselves from tick bites. Our annual "tick-talk" program aired on Friday (June 7th) and will be rebroadcast on Townsquare Media Berkshire stations, 1420 WBEC, Live 95.9 FM, and 100.1 WUPE FM on Sunday morning (June 9th).
