Upcoming Conferences


Thursday-Sunday, November 9–12, 2017
Boston, MA

We are excited to announce the 2017 ILADS Annual Scientific Session in Boston, fall 2017. The theme this year marries international collaboration of the latest developments: research and evidence based medicine for tick-borne disease.


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 RESEARCH PRIZE

The ILADEF Foundation Research committee has been established with the mission to encourage international researchers as well as clinicians to develop research programs and protocols, which would benefit the diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne illnesses.

To that end two researchers will be invited to present their papers in the basic science/clinical research area at the annual scientific session in Philadelphia, PA. Additionally, two researchers will be eligible for up to $1000 prize. A couple select student travel grants will be awarded.
