Partners Against Lyme (PAL) is a newly formed partnership of Lyme disease advocacy and support groups organized to establish a unified front in the fight against Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. PAL believes that it is time for a new approach and that real and lasting improvement in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of Lyme disease can best be realized by advocacy organizations uniting and working together in true partnership.
While focusing on collaboration to raise national awareness of this debilitating disease, PAL encourages each group to retain its own identity and independence. We value the unique contribution each organization brings to the table. PAL believes that to boldly confront the status quo of misunderstanding and misdiagnosis that currently surrounds Lyme disease, advocacy groups need to foster a diversity of ideas and perspectives, uniting the community to take direct, concerted action that will eventually lead to a cure for Lyme at all stages of the disease.
