LACK OF ADEQUATE FEDERAL FUNDING

The funding for Lyme Disease is $63. per patient while less common vector borne diseases like Malaria and West Nile have 1800 and 200 times the per patient funding.

500,000 NEW CASES PER YEAR

Reported by the CDC. Nearly 5 times higher than cases reported in 1991. Tick borne illness is a growing crisis and infectious ticks are on the move due to changing climatic conditions.
