In 2015, Brandi Dean founded the Dean Center for Tick Borne Illness at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. Her personal experience as a young mother with Lyme disease led her to identify a need for a multidisciplinary center to treat, rehabilitate, and recover individuals suffering from persistent tick borne illness. Acting as an advisor and advocate, she joined hands with both physicians and leadership at Spaulding Rehab to help open the first center imbedded in a major academic medical institution focused on treating patients with chronic tick-borne illnesses. Brandi continues to serve as an active Advisory Board member for the Dean Center for Tick Borne Illness. Her story has been featured in the Boston Globe, DoctorOz.com, Fox News Boston, WCVB Boston, NPR, Good Housekeeping, and Wellesley Weston Magazine.
She also holds a leadership in Ride Out Lyme, a charity event she designed and that raises financial grants for adults with the illness. The event is held annually at SoulCycle in Boston, NYC and Los Angeles with expansion into other cities.
