Leading Medical Expert on Lice and other Parasites
Dr. Richard Pollack is a world-renowned expert on head lice, bed bugs, and other parasites.
I am Nurse Lisa. I graduated from River Ridge High School and Highland Community College. I am married to Lloyd, and we have four daughters who all have (or still do) attend River Ridge. Prior to joining the River Ridge staff 18 years ago, I have worked in Labor & Delivery, Pediatrics and at various Doctors' offices. My philosophy of school nursing is that I am here to keep kids in school. If there is a way that I can help them make it through the day, I will.
In my "spare" time I run the clock and keep book for Volleyball, Girl's Basketball and Softball. My favorite thing to do is attend my daughter's sporting events. I like to read, play cards, swim, play computer games and spend time on Apple Canyon Lake in the summer.

Report your At-Home Covid tests here:
The CDC highly encourages at-home antigen tests be reported through MakeMyTestCount. At-home antigen tests should be reported at www.makemytestcount.org.
MakeMyTestCount is a part of an effort at the National Institutes of Health to develop standard ways to report at-home tests, and to securely and privately collect the data in a way that makes it understandable.
By reporting your test - whether negative or positive - you are part of that effort. When you report your test result, you help improve America’s understanding of how people are using at-home tests. You’re also helping researchers and public health teams figure out how best to use the data those test results give them. Thank you for doing your part - and for making your test count.
