Many, many thanks for your program research. I was one of the senders of a tick to your free testing program. As a Chronic Lyme sufferer, it is heartening to know there are research programs as yours that are on the battlefront of understanding Lyme, its co-infections and providing information to the public of this epidemic.

I was both moved and extremely impressed at LymeAid 2018 by the depth and breadth of your efforts. Your have done a great job distinguishing your focus among all of the various Lyme organizations. Huge kudos.

The response we have gotten from our field staff who have received the trainings and tick-check signage has been tremendous. It has increased their awareness of Lyme disease and given them the tools to reduce exposure to ticks in the field.
