Can we get 200 more responders for the ALL important Lyme survey? At least 5,000 people?

Let's try!

Surely you know someone with Lyme who hasn't filled out the survey yet. Have them check this post, please.

Let's start off the new year right!!!

Amazing! I actually didn't think it could be done, but you all did it!!!


This compiled data will help others know what WE need to make the Lyme situation better. And after all, it is suppose to be about US, isn't it?

Thanks for making this project- a very important one- a success!

As I've always said...

You all are the best!

Great! You all made this survey a success in many ways. Thank you!

Here is the official update.


LYMEPOLICYWONK: And, the Number Is?

5,200 Responses!

IDSA Guidelines and Patient Preference Survey

Let me thank everyone who responded to the Patient Preferences Survey!

We have drawn over 5,200 responses, which is just simply fabulous. We will now start the process of reviewing the responses with an eye toward publication of the results.

Our last survey was published in Health Policy, a widely respected peer reviewed journal. Those results now help inform the base of knowledge of the access to care problems that Lyme patients face.

Our goal with these surveys is to open the space for conversations in the public health arena about what is really going on with Lyme patients from their perspective.

We are trying to give voice to the patient community, which is all to often completely ignored in conversations about Lyme disease.

Your willingness to participate in these surveys allows us to do that. So hats off to you for being so vocal and letting us know your views.
