National Lyme Disease Conference

ILADS ConferenceI wanted to pass on to you that the International Lyme and associated Diseases Society (ILADS) is having their national Lyme Disease Conference from October 9-12 in Washington DC.

There is a fundamentals course on the 9th entitled, “The Fundamentals of Diagnosing and Treating Tick-Borne Illness.”

The scientific conference is being held the 10th thru the 12th, and is entitled, “15th Annual Scientific Conference: Neurological Spectrum.” It will provide evidence based medicine and will describe the clinical spectrum of tick-borne diseases, their diagnosis and treatment, and the assessment of co-morbid conditions.

If you are a healthcare practitioner or know of any health care practitioners who would like to learn more about diagnosing and treating Lyme disease this would be a wonderful conference for them to attend. Click here to read more and to sign up: ILADS-Washington DC.

Or if you have a loved one with Lyme disease and would like to learn more, please call ILADS to see if there is room for you to sign up. There are always some spots reserved for advocates and loved ones.

This conference will include the top Lyme physicians, including my doctor, Dr. Joseph Jemsek.

It has been approved by the American Medical Board so physicians can receive CME credits for attending. In addition, this conference is pending approval by the Nursing board for 25 Nursing CEU credits.

Once it is approved, I will be there to sign in and hand out certificates to the nurses. It would be nice to meet any of you attending.

ILADS Medical Conference, Hershey PA, April 11-12, 2014

ILADS provides medical conferences led by cutting edge practitioners in the field of Lyme disease. They are invaluable if you are a healthcare provider trying to learn how to treat this complicated disease process or if you are a patient or advocate of Lyme. Last year was the first year that these conferences came to Pennsylvania, and there were so many practitioners interested in learning that the conference sold out. This year we have booked a larger room so as to allow more practitioners to come and learn. Last year, I did the legwork to ensure that not only physicians but also nurses would be able to receive continuing educational credits. This year, I hope to do the same. I will let you know as soon as I receive approval.

ILADS is also offering a European conference in Augsburg, Germany, on April 25-26, with an emphasis on the European experience and a national conference in Washington DC, from October 9-12, for US area physicians and other healthcare practitioners.

If you are a healthcare professional, advocate or fellow Lyme sufferer, it is imperative to become as informed as possible to help bring healing for Lyme sufferers.
