LYME & TICK DISEASE RESOURCES
www.stoplyme.com: STOP LYMPE is a campaign, and a One Health website from Steve Dale (and Black Dog Radio Productions) which integrates human medicine and veterinary medicine – based on the assumption that dogs are a sentinel for tick disease in people.
Where there are ticks – there’s tick disease….where there’s tick disease in dogs, it follows there is tick disease in people (as people share the same environment as their dogs).
StopLyme is partnership of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Global Lyme Alliance and others to help increase Lyme (and tick disease disease) awareness about protection, prevention and treatment in dogs and in people.
American Veterinary Medical Association:
An AVMA podcast with Dr. Michael Stone, an internal medicine specialist and clinical assistant professor at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, discusses Lyme disease.
Global Lyme Alliance: Formed by the merger of Lyme Research Alliance (LRA) and Tick-Borne Disease Alliance (TBDA), is a leading private nonprofit organization in the United States dedicated to finding a cure and accurate test for Lyme disease, as well as educating physicians and the public about the dangers of Lyme. Today GLA has gained national prominence for its commitment to changing the course of Lyme disease by funding ground-breaking research, while expanding education programs for the general public and physicians.
