Michigan Lyme Disease Association


In-person meetings


The Michigan Lyme Disease Association, Inc. (MLDA) is a statewide all volunteer non-profit 501c3 organization founded in 1989. The organization not only develops programs to promote awareness and prevention of Lyme disease and tick-borne illnesses, but also educates health care professionals.

The MLDA maintains support groups throughout the state that offer practical information and guidance. We provide additional education through our bi-monthly newsletter TickTalk, which also has information about Lyme disease and other MLDA activities.

Through your generous donations and public fundraising, the MLDA accomplished a research study tracking the distribution of Lyme disease in dogs throughout southeastern Michigan, as well as organizing the state’s first fully accredited medical conference on Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.

We are dedicated to improving the quality of health care by supporting research, providing lectures to the community, distributing current educational literature, providing information on our web site, offering daily telephone support, and sponsoring medical conferences. In 2009 we sponsored our 5th medical conference on Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.

With your continued support, you can help the MLDA fund ongoing research, provide educational resources such as pamphlets and tick-ID cards, sponsor medical conferences, telephone support, and future prevention programs developed for public education.
