Turn the Corner Foundation is dedicated to the support of research, education, awareness and innovative treatments for Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. In 2008, Turn the Corner granted over $450,000 for several exciting research projects, including studies on biofilms, nematodes and antibiotic therapy for chronic Lyme patients.

Staci Grodin, President and Co-Founder of TTC, was diagnosed with Lyme in 1994 and understands the importance of finding a Lyme literate doctor. Staci stresses that "the earlier you are diagnosed with Lyme, the easier it can be to treat. This is why it's important to have doctors who are able to identify and properly treat Lyme and co-infections from the onset. We are hoping the Physicians Training Program will spread the knowledge that can prevent advanced cases of chronic Lyme, which are much more complicated, debilitating and expensive. I went misdiagnosed for several months before learning I had Lyme and my symptoms continue to this day. There i
