CLARIFICATION: LDA is not involved in the James Madison Lyme Study

A recent email from individuals at James Madison University is soliciting information for a Lyme study.

The study descriptor uses the name of the "Lyme Disease Association" in the "Benefits" section, making it appear that the Lyme Disease Association (LDA) is associated with and/or supports the study. To the contrary, the LDA knows nothing about the study, its principles, or its purpose and therefore, has not taken a position on the study and is not endorsing or supporting it. The LDA has requested University officials to remove its name from the study announcement multiple times, and this request has been denied. The LDA is sorry about any confusion this has caused patients who have been inquiring about the study.
