These themes are:

ILADS conferences bring the latest in evidence-based scientific advances to inform best practices in the clinical care of patients with Lyme disease and related infections. With Lyme and related diseases to compare and contrast with persistent infection across a spectrum of human disease, we will learn how persistent infections and host responses interact to cause chronic disease.
