“Change has to start somewhere.” LymeX kicks off new efforts to find solutions.
Bridging the Trust Gap, a public webinar kicking off LymeX, was held April 28.
LymeX is a $25 million-dollar, three-year public-private partnership to promote “innovation in Lyme and other tick-borne diseases to improve prevention, diagnosis, and patient outcomes.”
At the LymeX Webinar, HHS Chief Data Scientist Kristen Honey provided an overview of why we need LymeX.
Additional talks featured Lorraine Johnson, principal investigator of MyLymeData; Nevena Zubcevik, DO, of Invisible International; Brian A. Fallon, MD, director of the Cohen Center for Health and Recovery from Tick-Borne Diseases; and entrepreneur Lauren Pfeifer, who discussed new technologies to help patients.
