Concerned parents and community members gathered at the Ridgefield Library on September 22, 2014 to hear about the unique impact tick-borne diseases have on children. Speakers included pediatrician Dr. Nancy O'Hara, who gave a very thorough overview of signs and symptoms and Educational Psychologist Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, who focused on behavior and learning.  Lyme disease survivor 24-year-old John Donnally shared his own personal experience through a video he made while cycling across America.
