Please Contact us for more information via the contact form below or via NorthernRockiesLyme@gmail.com. Other pages in this section so far include Regional Lyme Disease Challenge Links, Patient Contacts, and Crucial Regional Lyme Questions.

These topics and areas of interests mostly apply across the entire region, and in many cases across the entire Lyme community.  But please feel free to contact Angela via northernrockieslyme@gmail.com or our contact form below if there is something state, province, or community specific you are looking for, as these pages are still being compiled.

We can also connect you with patients or organizations in your particular topic area or geographic region of interest.

Also watch for a resource library that will include past articles, stories, and resources by state/province and regional contacts and/or media contacts.

Areas of Interest ~ Urgent, Current, or Short-Term

*Bitterroot Study Results (Ravalli County)

You may have read about the Lyme disease study in the Bitterroot, and the recent news that their results indicate more patients in Montana than previously thought, as well as the likelihood of cases contracted in Montana.  We are excited to have these results made public and hopeful that more counties will take a closer look, or more efforts like this one will occur in additional counties.  Many of us with Lyme disease believe we contracted it here and with very good reason.  Most of the patient and media contacts on our Northern Rockies Lyme Disease Coalition website contracted Lyme in Montana or neighboring states and provinces.  Patients contracting Lyme elsewhere are also working toward better awareness, because it is currently nearly impossible to be diagnosed or treated for Lyme disease locally.
