As the newly elected President of ILADS, I am excited about new developments and growing knowledge in the field of Lyme and tick borne diseases. I envision our organization taking a leading role in promoting a balanced understanding of the literature. This is exemplified by the acceptance of our guidelines to the National Guideline Clearinghouse. Clinicians, academicians, researchers, legislators and patients all have a stake in advancing our ability to understand and manage these conditions.

As president of ILADS, I hope to facilitate collaboration between these interested stake holders. In so doing, I envision promoting our ability to continue advancing the science and to compassionately care for our patients.
