Massachusetts consistently ranks in the top ten states in the US in reported Lyme disease cases, and its numbers are decidedly on the rise. JSI was contracted by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Bureau of Communicable Disease Control, to conduct a statewide needs assessment to explore the public's perceptions, knowledge, attitudes, and preventive behaviors with respect to Lyme disease, and to gain a better understanding of primary care providers' experiences, practice patterns, and knowledge of Lyme disease.
