Assessing Awareness of Tick-borne Illnesses at Danbury High School
The incidence of Lyme disease has been increasing since it was first discovered in 1975 in Lyme, CT. If Lyme disease is left untreated, an early localized infection (represented by a single EM) can disseminate to other parts of the body. Spirochetes disseminate through the blood and cause multiple EM rashes and other sequelae. This project aimed to educate high school students about tick-borne illnesses and what they can do to protect themselves.
