International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society
Leaders in Lyme Disease Education and Training

Our Calling. Our Purpose.

We are a nonprofit, international, medical society dedicated to the diagnosis
and appropriate treatment of Lyme and its associated diseases.
Our Calling: To Educate. To Train. To Get The Word Out.
A Lyme Specialist in every Country, State/Region, and HomeTown.
Our Purpose: Training Doctors to diagnose and effectively treat people suffering from Lyme disease; dynamic and innovative public awareness projects; international conferences dedicated to the education of doctors and healthcare professionals; educational events for the ones most affected; people suffering from lyme disease and their family and friends.


It takes all of us doing what we can to make a difference. Without the support of people like you, the number of those suffering with undiagnosed Lyme disease will continue to grow. Small or Large Donations, every bit helps.
