Since taking office, Serino—who Chairs the Senate’s Taskforce on Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases—has secured unprecedented funding for research and prevention initiatives to the tune of $1,200,000. Further, she has successfully ushered in the passage of laws aimed at raising awareness for the diseases and educating our young people to help prevent their spread.
