About GLA

Global Lyme Alliance is the leading 501 (c)(3) dedicated to conquering Lyme and other tick-borne diseases through funding innovative research, offering effective education and awareness programs, and advancing, through science and data, reliable diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and an eventual cure.

Our vision is to improve the quality of life for individuals who suffer from Lyme and tick-borne diseases.

Research

GLA-funded researchers—who were the first to prove the existence of the previously disputed chronic Lyme condition—have decoded the Lyme genome, discovered how the disease can survive antibiotic therapy, and now understand far more about what makes the Lyme bacterium different than any other type of infection.

Education & Awareness

GLA offers the general public and physicians significant education and awareness initiatives, including an interactive school curriculum, a camp awareness program, and a CME-accredited medical education program for healthcare professionals. GLA’s Doctor Referral Program helps people suffering from Lyme find a doctor who is well-versed in tick-borne diseases. Learn More

Events

GLA events range from large-scale galas, charity endurance programs, sporting events, to intimate grassroots fundraisers. There is an opportunity for everyone—sponsor, attend, organize, host, donate—to help GLA create real change in the battle against Lyme disease. Learn More
