This organization has been a wonderful source of information and support for my struggle with Lyme Disease. They have helped me learn about the disease, and I have referred others to the site. The website is full of information, all up to date and very helpful. I am grateful and blessed to have met these folks, and to have them helping folks here in Michigan.
Having been involved with many non profits in many different capacities, I feel I can give a fair assessment of the MLDA. The president/director is knowledgeable, organized, energetic and caring. She goes well above what would be expected and is involved on a national level. Dollar for dollar the money raised is well spent on education and prevention of Lyme Disease. It is an excellent organization! I would highly recommend support and involvement.
I have found the MLDA to be an excellent resource to myself as a Lyme Disease victim. I have found the conferences ecspecially educational, and appreciate the fact that lay persons as well as physicians, researchers, and other professionals are highlighted, and invited. Occasionally, I am able to attend support groups which are invaluable to my mental health, as it is a chance for us to be among our peers, and encourage each other. The MLDA is deserving of any recognition it receives.
