Clinicians and Health Professionals
Indiana Lyme Connect, ILC, is at work developing education and programs on Lyme literacy for health care professionals.
One way we promote awareness of Lyme and other co-infections is our commitment to sending healthcare professionals to the fall Annual Lyme Disease Conference, sponsored by the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society, ILADS. Please view the information and registration for a stipend to attend to the 2017 Conference.
A recent article about “sleeper cells,” co-authored by researchers at New York Medical College and the CDC, acknowledges something many Lyme researchers have suspected for decades.
Namely, that Borrelia, the bacterium that causes Lyme disease, has well-developed mechanisms of persistence that permit it to survive in its hosts.

International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society, ILADS,
ILADS hosts several annual conferences for equipping physicians. See more at: http://www.ilads.org/lyme_programs/ilads-conferences.php. ILADS is a nonprofit, international, multidisciplinary medical society dedicated to the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and associated diseases. ILADS promotes understanding of Lyme and associated diseases through research, education and policy. We strongly support physicians, scientists, researchers and other healthcare professionals dedicated to advancing the standard of care for Lyme and associated diseases.
ILADS also has a physician training program called ILADEF.
This physician training program will train the next generation of physician-scientists who will be future leaders in the treatment of Lyme and Associated Diseases. The ILADEF Physician Training Program, a groundbreaking project vital to fostering excellence in care for Lyme disease patients, directly addresses challenges in properly diagnosing and treating Lyme and other tickborne diseases. 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, improving the health and quality of life for those that suffer from the most debilitating effects of Lyme disease.
