Dedicated to raising awareness of ALL tick borne diseases, offering support, and providing referrals for information, research, and healthcare choices.

Arkansas Residents need to get involved with this!!  This is our key to help with the issue of Lyme in the southern states.  Anyone interested !

Both the UNF Tick Testing information form and tick submission form are on the Georgia Lyme Disease website so it is downloadable.

Please remind people, the testing is done for RESEARCH PURPOSES only and not for diagnostic purposes. This data is being gathered so that we can gather more knowledge about tick-borne diseases, especially in the South.

Here is the link. Look at story on right upper side, below flagging for ticks photo:

Also, note that Dr. Clark can get really backed up in the lab sometimes, especially when tick season begins. I know he usually tests ticks that have been attached to humans first, and usually if they are symptomatic, he tries to test them before others that may have been sent in from people’s yards.

He has very little help right now due to lack of funding. If we raise more funding, he can hire lab assistants that could help us speed up this work! It is KEY to what is occurring in the South!
Thanks, everyone!
