Lincoln and Lancaster County Community Head Lice Task Force:

The Lincoln and Lancaster County Community Head Lice Task Force was formed in 1998 in response to publicity in a local newspaper recommending parents use alternative treatments for head lice. UNL Extension in Lancaster County was inundated with calls and questions from frustrated parents who had tried these treatments without success.

The Community Head Lice Task Force provided educational forums for physicians and nurses. The Task Force also participated in panel discussions on head lice and policy to school administrators. As a result, there were significant changes in school policy and school nurse protocols to start the 1999-2000 Lincoln Public School year. These changes resulted in a 70% drop in head lice cases in Lincoln Public Schools for school year 1999-2000.
