Lyme, CT 06371
The American Lyme Disease Foundation, Inc. (ALDF) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to advancing treatment, research, prevention, and public awareness of Lyme disease and other tick borne illnesses. Lyme disease is an infectious tick-transmitted disease characterized by an early skin lesion and, subsequently, a growing red area on the skin (i.e., "bull's eye" rash). In some cases, later symptoms may include joint, neurological, and/or heart problems. Established in 1990, the foundation focuses on public and professional education and support of research. It provides a toll-free number and a national physician referral service. The ALDF also supports peer-reviewed research into the prevention and control of tick-borne infections.
