Holly Ahern, Associate Professor of Microbiology at SUNY Adirondack, is co-founder and vice president of the Lyme Action Network.
She serves on a subcommittee of the Federal Tick-borne Disease Working Group, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and is the science advisor for a number of national Lyme advocacy organizations.
With over 300,000, new cases of Lyme disease occurring annually, at an annual cost of about $2 billion, more prevention, education, and research are urgently needed. Misinformation, politics, and mistrust, however, pose huge obstacles to forward momentum, costing people their lives.
