New York: Empire State Lyme Disease Association
Empire State Lyme Disease Association
Within these groups across the United States and other countries, there are fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and so forth. As Dr. Jemsek states, “sooner or later” your family will be affected by this growing disease and you, too, will be trying to make a difference.
“In the Lymelight” ~ Empire State Lyme Disease Association
“Empire State Lyme Disease Association, Inc. is a non-for-profit 501(c)3 organization incorporated in New York State.
Our mission is advocacy, education of the public, education of health care professionals and Lyme and associated disease research. Empire State is based in Manorville, NY and is active in local, state, and national issues. There is a desperate need for public awareness of tick-borne illnesses.
Our goal is to prevent chronic tick-borne diseases, by education about prevention which includes crucial early diagnosis and by promoting a quality of health care that needs to be provided to patients with both early and chronic tick-borne diseases.
We are dedicated to helping and supporting people suffering from Lyme and associated tick-borne diseases.
Empire State Lyme Disease Association wants to thank the many people involved with making previous years of advocacy successful.
We are also looking forward to much future work that will continue to raise awareness of Lyme disease.”
