Keynote speakers will be Dr. Steven Phillips and Dana Parish, co-authors of Chronic: The Hidden Cause of Autoimmune Pandemic and How to Get Healthy Again. The book reveals striking evidence that a broad range of microbes, including the Lyme bacterium, cause a variety of recurrent conditions and autoimmune diseases.
Tune in for a discussion of the science behind common infections that are difficult to diagnose and treat, as well as solutions that empower sufferers to reclaim their lives. This 20-minute presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session.
Novel treatments–Making Sense of Treatment Options
Returning LymeMIND speakers Richard Horowitz, MD, John Aucott, MD and Andrew Petersen, DO will be joined by Tania Tyles Dempsey, MD, ABIHM for a discussion on the latest research into treatment options for Lyme disease. This panel will explore differences in current treatment options – CDC vs. ILADS, critical time points from tick bite to chronic symptoms that patients should consider and the latest research on treatment options.
The 30-minute discussion will be moderated by Dr. Aucott and followed by a 10-minute live Q&A session.

Panelists Holly Ahern, State University of New York, Sue Faber, RN, Co-Founder of LymeHope, Dr. Charlotte Mao, Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital, and moderator Phyllis Bedford, Founder and Executive Director at LymeLight Foundation, will explore key questions on the impact of Lyme on mothers and children, including:
- How can we detect and treat Lyme and tick-borne diseases in children?
- What are the special considerations for children?
- Children are the most at-risk population in the U.S., how do we prevent infection?
