Ticks are vectors for disease and can be very hard to see!


The health of our community is important to everyone.  CCE Oneida programming takes steps to improve the health and safety of our residents in as many ways as possible.  This includes taking measures to decrease the occurrences of lead poisoning in children, improving nutrition and creating healthy and safe child care environments.
