ILADEF Physician Training Program

The Training Program provides medical and other healthcare practitioners the opportunity to study with Lyme-literate healthcare professionals. Through this experience, participants will develop the skills necessary to properly diagnose and treat Lyme disease. These professionals will be able to return to their community with enhanced skills and the ability to provide superior care to Lyme patients.

ILADEF ANNOUNCES CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Educational Foundation (ILADEF) research committee encourages international researchers, students and clinicians to submit an abstract for the meeting in Paris. Accepted abstracts will be presented as posters at the meeting. After judging, two of these posters will be chosen for monetary prizes. In addition, up to 8 student travel grants of 500 euros each will be awarded for the best abstracts submitted for poster presentations. Proof of student registry is needed. Both medical and PhD students are encouraged to apply. Due date for submission of abstracts is 15 March 2017.
