About Lyme Disease Coalition, Inc.
Our organization Lyme Disease Coalition, Inc. ((*1)501c3 applied for) was recently formed to help enhance and extend public education, assist in surveillance and scientific study efforts in order to gain more useable information which will in turn aid in educating and engaging the community with their involvement. We encourage and welcome volunteer support for those who are suffering and in many cases have been suffering for many years along with family and caregivers also affected by this disease.
One of our first goals is to get out into the community and spread awareness and prevention tips along with the moral support. Our meetings include general meet and greet, guest speakers such as Professors, Dr.’s, Councilors, dietitians, and those of us who have been suffering for years.
We also expect to offer informational prevention packet samples of permethrin, tweezers or tick pullers, pet sprays and/or collars.
Lyme disease is not just a bulls eye rash. Lyme disease can lead to long term suffering if not treated early. In the long term we hope to assist in getting more health care providers in our area better educated in treating Lyme and associated diseases. In the meantime, our meetings will help to provide first line defense in the prevention of this disease.
