SUPPORT GROUP

MIA has on going research projects and will continue in the future with:

-Methodist Rehabilitation Center (MRC) 

 -University Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC)

-University of Southern Mississippi (USM)

-Wilson Research Foundation.

Participants of the support group continue to enroll in these studies in Mississippi.

 
The PCORI funding has allowed us to form a non-profit organization called Mosquito Illness Alliance.  We hope to offer support for patients and their families, education to the medical community, and build our research efforts. 

ORGANIZATIONAL FUNDING

 

In September 2012, I contracted West Nile Virus. For several days my temperature was 103 degrees, and when I saw my doctor he immediately sent me to the hospital where I was put on an IV.                                                                                                                                                         - Karen Hill
