Developing a national Lyme disease strategy in Canada
Information about the Federal Framework on Lyme Disease Conference
I want to provide some information about the upcoming Federal Framework on Lyme Disease Conference. This national conference, mandated by my private member’s bill C-442, will bring together ministers, members of the medical community, and patients’ groups to develop a new federal framework for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease in Canada.
The Federal Framework on Lyme Disease Conference will take place from May 15-17, 2016 in Ottawa. On May 15, a public forum will be held, during which Canadians can share their personal experiences with Lyme disease.
