Tick Talk

June 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

One Bite Can Change Your Life

Lyme disease is prevalent in Northern California, yet most practicing physicians don’t recognize the signs and symptoms of the disease.  You have to be your own best warrior.  Learn how to prevent tick bites, recognize the ticks that are prevalent in Contra Costa County and the disease they carry, and what to do if you are bitten.  Carolyn Degnan, COO of LymeDisease.org will talk about the  steps you need to know to protect yourself, your family and your pets from this debilitating disease.  Carolyn is a longtime resident of CCC and has two daughters who were bitten in the San Ramon Valley. Both daughters contracted Lyme disease and multiple co-infections while hiking and trail riding.  She has been a Lyme advocate since 2002 giving Lyme prevention talks to The US Forest Service, EBMUD, PG&E, Boy and Girls Scout troops, Fire Fighters, local service clubs, etc.  Any question you would like to have answered during the hour can be directed to Carolyn at cdegnan@lymedisease.org
