Lyme Disease Awareness Month 2019

May 01, 2019 | Michelle Shapiro

In honor of Lyme Disease Awareness Month in May, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) compiled a digital press kit with updates about the current state of tickborne disease in the United States, resources to share, and steps to take for prevention and protection.

View the digital press kit here.

The CDC is also hosting a Lyme haiku challenge on Twitter throughout the month, encouraging people to post haikus related to Lyme and other tickborne diseases. Follow #LymeHaikuChallenge to see the poems already posted.
