WEBINAR: The state of Lyme disease research and how we can change that
November 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) is sponsoring a free webinar on The State of Lyme Disease Research and Tick-Borne Disease-Related Legislative Action.
It will be held November 30 at 7 PM ET.
Bonnie Crater and Nicole Bell, with the Center for Lyme Action, will present an overview of their recently released policy paper – “The State of Lyme Disease Research in the United States.”
The research paper explores the progress that has been made to find a cure for Lyme and tick-borne diseases and what is needed going forward. It makes 26 recommendations for research investments by the federal government and calls for an annual investment of $500 million – $1 billion to find a cure.
The plan outlines five areas of opportunity in tick-borne disease research, including improving fundamental knowledge, detection, prevention, treatment, and research tools and resources.
The webinar is open to both patients and medical providers. Registered attendees will receive access to the recording for two weeks.
