The Lyme Disease Association Inc (LDA) announces that in its first year as an established student group, the Lyme Disease Advocacy Project won Duke Law School’s annual award for Greatest Service to the Outside Community. This award is given to the student group that provided outstanding service to the North Carolina community and beyond throughout the year. By drafting research memorandums for the Lyme Disease Association, the Lyme Disease Advocacy Project provided vital information for the LDA to better advocate for Lyme disease patients. Student co-founders, Luke Mears and Madison Pinckney accepted the award alongside the Assistant Dean of Public Interest and Pro Bono at Duke Law, Stella Boswell.

The LDA congratulates the Co-Founders, Luke Mears & Madison Pickney, on this achievement. The formation of the Lyme Disease Advocacy Project  required time, energy, and research on their part to establish the program and to recruit other students to help carry out the Project’s mission.  LDA is pleased to partner in this endeavor which may help those who already have Lyme and other tick-borne diseases and perhaps prevent others from acquiring the diseases.
