Columbia News, April 30, 2019, by Carla Cantor, “When Lyme Disease Doesn’t Go Away” is an interview with Brian A. Fallon, MD, Director of the Columbia University Lyme & Tick-Borne Diseases Research Center. The article discusses his early career and his work on Lyme beginning in the early 90s and the formation of the Center, a joint effort between then Time for Lyme (now GLA) and the Lyme Disease Association, Inc. and the Columbia Board of Trustees. He discusses persistent Lyme.

His book, Conquering Lyme Disease: Science Bridges the Great Divide, with co-author Jennifer Sotsky, is also featured in the article.
