Description:Tick borne diseases have become a public health crisis in endemic areas of the US.   As lone star ticks are on the rise, exposure to these tick bites  are associated with a delayed allergic reaction to mammalian meat due to development of antibodies to Galactose-alpha-1, 3-galactose or commonly known as alpha gal.  It is important for health care providers to identify, diagnose,  and manage patients with this allergy  and to prevent further tick exposure.

 

Objectives: 

1.) Describe signs, symptoms and  diagnosis for the alpha gal IGE meat allergy transmitted by

the lone star tick.

Description: Implicit biases are attitudes or stereotypes that unconsciously affect our actions, decisions, and understanding. Implicit biases can manifest in the criminal justice system, workplace, school setting, and in the healthcare system. This may range from categories of race, gender, and sexuality. These biases often arise as a result of trying to find patterns and navigate the overwhelming stimuli in this very complicated world. Culture, media, and upbringing can also contribute to the development of such biases. Research reveals effective  interventions to reduce these biases. 

 

Objectives: 

1.) Describe implicit bias and their possible  consequences.

2.) List examples of implicit bias to include stereotypes and microaggressions.

3.) Describe self awareness reflection  and strategies to reduce bias.
