May 2018 Declared Lyme Disease Awareness Month
States and counties throughout the US have proclaimed May Lyme Disease Awareness Month.
Many states and counties have taken steps to raise awareness regarding Lyme and tick-borne diseases. Declaring “May Lyme Awareness Month” is one move to help remind people spring is here, ticks are out, prevention & proper education are your best tools to staying healthy.
Proclamations are issued by governors and resulutions are adopted by the legislature. The LDA salutes and thanks all the governors, legislators, Lyme groups, and advocates who have helped raise awareness throughout the year. Your efforts make a difference!
We thank our neighbors to the North for joining in the efforts to prevent the spread of Lyme.
