NatCapLyme strives to improve the quality of life for people suffering from Lyme and other tick-borne diseases by offering support and disseminating information to educate and empower patients, families, healthcare workers, and the community at large.
We have three main strategic objectives to accomplish our mission:
1. Build Support
We create networks for sharing our personal trials and experiences through our monthly support group meetings. Through medical conferences, educational seminars and public events, we collaborate and partner with other organizations and government agencies that are focused on treating and eliminating tick-borne illness.
2. Increase Awareness
We educate communities through public service programs and the distribution of print and digital materials. We heighten public awareness about tick-borne diseases by hosting noted healthcare professionals’ presentations. Using social media, television, radio and newspaper, we draw media attention to tick-borne illnesses, raising awareness nationwide.
3. Find a Cure
We build support for tick-borne disease research by educating local, state, federal and international medical and political influencers, in addition to funding Lyme disease research efforts. We work on both state and federal legislation to address Lyme and tick-borne disease issues.
