Award Recipient Pat Smith: Decades Fighting For Lyme Disease Patients

After Lyme disease struck her family, Pat began her advocacy work, expanding the scope of the Lyme Disease Assoc .to a national organization. She developed an Affiliates Network, as other groups around the country joined the LDA, supporting the efforts she led. She worked on federal legislation, and advised state groups on legislation that would further the cause of research and provide patients better access to Lyme knowledgeable doctors. She led the LDA's efforts in raising over a million dollars in funds toward the opening of the Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases Research Center at Columbia University, an effort taken on jointly with Time for Lyme. Pat has provided research and education grants through the funds she has raised. Under her leadership, the LDA and Columbia University School of Medicine have sponsored annual scientific conferences that have focused on the latest research in tick-borne diseases.
