Join us and together we can raise funds to support awareness and education, and assist in research and innovative treatment of Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases.
The Lyme Support Network is a non-profit service organization dedicated to making a difference by building awareness of Lyme Disease within our community. Our primary goal is to serve as a support group for people with Lyme Disease and / or other tick-borne diseases. Our work also includes advocacy to help increase the level of knowledge and understanding of Lyme Disease among the general public and the medical community.
New ILADS Lyme guidelines published August 2014!
The new ILADS Lyme guidelines are a result of over 3 years of rigorous evidence assessment of research regarding assessment and treatment of Lyme disease.
