Brian Kelly, owner of East End Tick & Mosquito Control, has donated $25,000 to Southampton Hospital's Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center. The funding will support the creation of a curriculum for East End school districts that is in accordance with NYS requirements for school-age children.

The Southampton resident is eager to educate children in the local communities about the dangers of tick-borne disease, and to increase consciousness among their parents. Kelly has been involved in the Hospital's Tick-Borne Disease Resource since its launch a year ago, and his earlier backing assisted with the production of tick identification cards in both English and Spanish, which have been given out at events across the East End. Kelly also worked with Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman on the creation of a tick educational video for schools. Information on tick-borne disease and prevention will be available at Children's Museum of the East End's "Peconic Family Fun Day" on Saturday, May 2nd (www.cmee.org).

In an effort to further inform the public about tick-borne disease, Southampton Hospital is hosting a free lecture, "How TickSmart™ Are You?," featuring Thomas N. Mather, PhD. The event will take place at Parrish Memorial Hall on Saturday, May 2nd at 10 a.m. Mather is a Professor of Entomology at the University of Rhode Island and Director of the University's Center for Vector-Borne Disease. RSVP is required for the event. To RSVP, call 631-726-0452 or email kwulffraat@southmaptonhospital.org.
