Please take the time to review the information provided on our web site to learn about Lyme in Texas. While we endeavor to keep this site focused on our own state, we have provided links to other web sites with a broader focus for those who wish to learn more.
Then please join our effort to raise awareness of the prevalence of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illness in Texas, and to provide a safe environment in which our trained medical professionals can treat us without threat of frivolous challenges from the Texas Medical Board.
If you can provide us with additional insight and information, or wish to make suggestions about this web site, please contact us. We may not get back to you right away, but please know that your participation is important and appreciated.
