Lyme Sucks Challenge

Lyme disease is a borreliosis, an improperly tested for disabling disease that has for decades been an under-reported, poorly recognized serious threat to the health of Canadians, tourists, and our businesses who employ outdoor workers –  (symptoms list)

Lyme disease is on the rise in Canada, yet diagnostics, treatment and public awareness are largely inadequate. The Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation (CanLyme) is dedicated to raising awareness and promoting Lyme Disease research, education and treatment. See our CanLyme Venture Grants Policy available to medical/science research students and investigators.
