BOTA BORRELIA – KAMPANJNYHETER från USA

Jag prenumererar på olika nyhetsbrev från USA om Borrelia – vilket håller mig uppdaterad om utvecklingen i landet som bestämmer borreliavården i nästan hela övriga världen. För att vinna kampen om och över sjukdomen beror på det på vad som händer ”over there” för att det ska förändras även här.

Detta är det senaste med den viktigaste nyheten under nyhetsbrevet:

2012 Lymewalks:
Raising Lyme awareness, raising funds for research

2012 Lymewalks are scheduled in three cities: Sacramento, Sept. 29; San Diego, Oct. 13; and Los Angeles, Oct. 14.
You can also participate from afar, by making a fundraising page and asking friends and family to join you in supporting Lyme research.

NEWS: Senator Blumenthal of CT renews push for federal Lyme legislation

28th July 2012
blumenthalHe’ll hold a hearing on the bill August 30 in Stamford, CT.

US Senator Richard Blumenthal, of Connecticut, is calling for aggressive federal action against Lyme disease.  In a press conference on July 27, he said he will push for passage of the Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Prevention, Education and Research Act.

The bill would provide resources for fighting the disease as well as form a national Lyme Advisory Committee, which would include patient representatives.

“Patients have been unrepresented and unreflected in the process and they have a powerful story. They are the ones who have suffered,” Blumenthal said.

Blumenthal will hold a Senate field hearing on the proposed bill in Stamford, CT, on August 30.
