We are thrilled to launch our newest non-profit partnership with Global Lyme Alliance! Global Lyme Alliance (GLA) is the leading 501 (c)(3) dedicated to conquering Lyme and other tick-borne diseases through research, education and awareness. GLA has gained national prominence for funding the most urgent and promising research in the field, while expanding education and awareness programs for the general public and physicians.

GLA-funded researchers—who were the first to prove the existence of the previously disputed chronic Lyme condition—have decoded the Lyme genome, discovered how the disease can survive antibiotic therapy, and now understand far more about what makes the Lyme bacterium different than any other type of infection.
EDUCATION & AWARENESS
GLA offers the general public and physicians significant education and awareness initiatives, including an interactive school curricula, a camp awareness program, and a CME-accredited medical education program for health care professionals. GLA’s Doctor Referral Program helps people suffering from Lyme find a doctor who is well-versed in tick-borne diseases.
GLA events range from large-scale galas, charity endurance programs, sporting events, to intimate grassroots fundraisers. There is an opportunity for everyone—sponsor, attend, organize, host, donate—to help GLA create real change in the battle against Lyme disease.
