After The Bite




In the early 1980's, a Maryland mother set out to educate the public and health care professionals about a newly emerging infectious disease when her child became ill after being bitten by ticks.  Her original volunteer efforts continue today and in her memory After The Bite was established.  

Since that time After The Bite's volunteer members have assisted patients, health care professionals and other support groups nationwide and internationally.

We won't go away!
