Our mission is advocacy, education of the public, education of health care professionals and Lyme and associated disease research.  Empire State is based in Manorville, NY and is active in local, state, and national issues.  There is a desperate need for public awareness of tick-borne illnesses. Our goal is to prevent chronic tick-borne diseases, by education about prevention which includes crucial early diagnosis and by promoting a quality of health care that needs to be provided to patients with both early and chronic tick-borne diseases.
