7th European Conference – Paris, France

What is more appealing than springtime in Paris?

Paris, the City of Light and love, is home to world-class food, historical monuments such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, and incomparable culture.

ILADS invites you to join us in Paris, France during our 7th European Conference, Friday May 19th and Saturday May 20th, 2017. The event will take place at the Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel.

This conference is geared towards medical professionals who have a particular interest in learning more about the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne diseases. Registrants will also hear about more advanced research and treatment protocols in the area of tick-borne illnesses.

Day One registrants may choose from one of two tracks. Option one is our Lyme Basics Course in Tick-Borne Diseases. This track is an excellent introduction or refresher on basic diagnosis and treatment protocols. The second option for registrants on Friday is the Scientific Session track focusing on cutting edge topics.

On Day Two, Saturday, May 20, the Scientific Session continues. Those who attended the Friday Lyme Basics Course may register for this session as well.

We are excited to introduce Dr. Christian Perronne, of the University of Paris as the organizer of the scientific conference on behalf of ILADS. In addition, Pol De Saedeleer, PharmD from Belgium will be overseeing the entire conference. He has planned a few cultural opportunities for your and your family to enjoy after the meetings. These include a typical French Bistro on Friday, a Bateau Mouche boat ride with finger food on Saturday, and a tour of Versailles on Sunday.
