We've launched StandUpAgainstLyme.org, a new URI Almuni Affinity Chapter! Our goal is to allow URI Alumni to stand up and be counted against the spread of tick-borne disease. We strongly urge you to visit the new site and submit your story.
How many URI alums have had Lyme disease? Can we join together to help get some relief? Will our collective voices, when bundled with those of thousands of other victims, prompt political action finally leading to solutions to the tick problem? We hope you'll accept this invitation -- to STAND UP and be COUNTED -- as one who has been impacted by ticks and the diseases they carry.
Not URI Alumni? We'd still like to hear from you with any questions you may have or if you're willing to support this cause! If you're not a URI Alumni, this is a brand new initiative and we're still exploring how to best involve people not affiliated with the university.
