Sponsor Profile: Jodi Nass
The Tick-Borne Disease Alliance is dedicated to raising awareness, promoting advocacy and supporting initiatives to find a cure for tick-borne diseases, including Lyme. Recently, TBDA launched Bite Back for a Cure, a national grassroots campaign to raise awareness about and support for the fight against tick-borne diseases. Bite Back for a Cure has two elements a digital advocacy and a national bike ride. This fall, 24-year-old Lyme-sufferer John Donnally is biking across America to meet others affected by Lyme disease and galvanize local support to fund research and educate the public about the silent epidemic of tick-borne diseases. Bite Back's digital advocacy campaign will accumulate testimonials from those affected by tick-borne diseases. This "video quilt" will be sent to state and federal legislators, urging them to support Lyme-disease legislation.
