We are super excited about our meeting last week!!! IL State Representative Dan Swanson and Jen went to University of Illinois to meet with Professor Brian Allan, Dept. of Entomology, School of Integrative Biology. The intention of our meeting was to get Spotlight on Lyme QCA and our scientists on the same page and open the lines of communication as to how we can better work together. Professor Allan is working on great things. His work will finally put to rest the long argument that “there is no Lyme in Illinois”. Can’t wait for his study to be completed and published.
Professor Allan demonstrated his state of the art equipment that he uses to test the ticks for pathogens! It was a very educational day and a day of bouncing ideas around!!
I am so grateful for Representative Swanson taking time out of his day and joining me! I couldn’t do any of this without his support to our cause and those that suffer.
