The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne infectious disease in the U.S. More than 476,000+ people report cases every year. Many go undetected!  

Here are some facts about Lyme Disease from the CDC:

  • Ticks carry over 20 diseases that can cause illness in humans.
  • Most people that have Lyme Disease also have co-infections.
  • Symptoms of Lyme Disease: disabling fatigue, severe headaches, brain fog, chronic nausea and stomach pain, depression, anxiety, nerve pain, muscle pain, muscle weakness, irregular heartbeat and sleeping problems. The list of possible symptoms is vast.
  • Diagnosing can be difficult because it resembles many other diseases and most people do not get a bullseye rash or any rash.

The LAGKC was founded in 1993 and we are a 501 (c)3 charitable organization.  We attend health fairs, physician conferences and community events to get more information into the hands of doctors, school nurses, and medical professionals along with the public at large.  We hope reach more people with our message of tick bite prevention. Our website continues to educate people in our community and across the country with Lyme Awareness. The Lyme Association is run entirely by volunteers and provides support to all members:
