Trish’s Bio:
Following a near fatal case of Lyme disease,  Trish McCleary learned about the personal and political issues surrounding Lyme and knew she had information that could help people.
Trish McCleary is now a legislative advocate  here in MA and Co-founder of S.L.A.M. (Sturbridge Lyme Awareness of MA) established in 2009.
S.L.A.M. is a Lyme awareness and support group hosting monthly “tick talk” meetings in Sturbridge.
She serves on the newly established MA Lyme Commission following an invitation by Governor Patrick and she works in support of legislation that has the best interests of the Lyme community.  
 
  • S.L.A.M.  received a proclamation from our Governor declaring the month of May as  Lyme disease awareness month  here in  Massachusetts.  
  • S.L.A.M.  has received citations from both the Senate and House of Representatives for their work related to Lyme disease awareness.
  • S.L.A.M.  was instrumental in introducing the Time for Lyme curriculum to the Tantasqua school district who has implemented the curriculum for the past  3  years.
  • S.L.A.M.  started  Ribbons Across America  in 2009 which asks homes and businesses to hang lime green ribbons for the month of May to raise awareness and to remember those who have lost their battle with Tick borne diseases.  Ribbons has become well known across the country with many states participating.
  • Trish is the mother of  2 sons with Lyme and a husband with Lyme disease.
