The survey was created by the Pennsylvania Lyme Disease Advisory Committee (PLDAC), which is a collaboration between the Farm Bureau, Lyme Disease Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania (SEPA), an LDA affiliate, and the Chester County Health Department. The Health Department is using their own statistical experts to analyze the data, the results of which should be available in March.
The committee is dedicated to educating residents on the risks, prevention, symptoms, and treatment options of Lyme disease and promoting federal and state legislative initiatives that provide funds for research and treatment of Lyme disease and protection of physicians.
Results from the survey will be used to educate policymakers about the true impact of Lyme disease in the daily life of Pennsylvania residents and help further educate residents about the disease.
This survey is open to the general public, is fully anonymous and takes 5-10 minutes to answer. Deadline for responding is February 29, 2012.
