ALLY HILFIGER - CSD 50th Anniversary Kickoff Event

Tuesday, September 12, 2017
5:00pm – 6:00pm

Storrs Campus
Student Union Theatre

To kick off the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) 50th anniversary of providing access and accommodations to students with disabilities on campus, the CSD has invited Ally Hilfiger, daughter of famous fashion designer, Tommy Hilfiger, and an individual with a chronic health condition, to discuss her battle with Lyme disease. Ally will discuss her journey to recovery after years of misdiagnosis and pain, which she recently chronicled in her book, "Bite Me: How Lyme Disease Stole My Childhood, Made Me Crazy, and Almost Killed Me".

Book signing and autographs will be available outside the theatre at 4:15.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Parents Fund.

For individuals requiring interpreting services or other accommodations, please contact Katie Halbruner at or 860-486-2020, as early as possible prior to the event to help us to ensure availability.
