IDSA is providing
resources to our members and to state and regional ID societies that wish to
educate their state lawmakers and governors about Lyme disease and advocate
against such harmful policies. IDSA has updated its primer on Lyme disease (PDF) geared toward state policymakers,
which we are also distributing via the National Council for State Legislators
and the National Governor’s Association.
As reported previously
in IDSA News, IDSA along with the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and the
American College of Rheumatology (ACR) are jointly developing a systematic
review and clinical practice guideline on the treatment of Lyme disease.
Announcements regarding the development of this guideline will be posted to the IDSA
