And unique in that... look at the community that we're in, you've got Over-the-Rhine, Pendleton and Downtown all within the doorstep."

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged deer ticks, and can cause fever, headache, fatigue, and infect joints and the nervous system. While reports of the disease are uncommon here, some experts believe that is because it is often misdiagnosed.
