The S1657 Kay Hagan TICK Act is currently making its way through the halls of Congress. It will provide millions of dollars for desperately needed research, surveillance, and education. To help honor Senator Kay Hagan and others with tick-borne illnesses, please call your Senators to ask for their support of the S1657 Kay Hagan TICK Act.
Senator Kay Hagan contracted Powassan virus from a tick bite. The former North Carolina Senator also dealt with encephalitis, and suffered from debilitating neurological symptoms which led to her death this week. To help honor her struggle, an effort is being pursued to secure additional research and funding through the TICK Act. Here’s how to get involved.
Tick-Borne Conditions United (TBC United) co-founder, Beth Carrison, INHC has been appointed to the Alpha-gal Syndrome (AGS) Subcommittee of the 2020 Tick-borne Disease Working Group (TBDWG). This means that individuals affected with Alpha-gal Syndrome can have their concerns and needs potentially raised before Congress.
