A conversation with Dr. Thomas Dobbs on summer insects
Dr. Thomas Dobbs is state epidemiologist with the Mississippi Department of Health. Dobbs, who is married and has two children, received his undergraduate degree from Emory University and his medical degree at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He recently spoke with Sun Staff Writer Anthony Warren about mosquitoes, mosquito-borne illnesses and other bugs to watch out for during the summer months.
There was a recent article in the New York Times about mosquitoes being the most deadly animals in the world. Is that true?
