We greatly appreciate that you are willing to take part in our study. You will have to be disciplined :-).

If you are close to the University of Wisconsin – Madison or Columbia University you can stop by and receive printed copies of the consent form, the enrollment questionnaire and 30 tick diaries. Or you print the documents at home. Please download the full package or each file separately.

Upon completion you can mail all the forms back to us. Be sure to include a signed consent form. Without a signed consent form we can not use the information you provide.
