The annual Lyme Disease Association conference, co-sponsored by Columbia University, will be taking place at the Providence Marriott Downtown in Providence, RI on May 3rd and 4th. As always, the conference will cover some of the cutting edge research regarding tick-borne and related illnesses. CMEs are available, as well as CEUs for social workers (under NASW-RI). I’ve learned that Connecticut accepts all CEUs from other state NASW chapters, and am delighted to have the opportunity for CEUs as an added benefit to my attending.

I encourage all those who are impacted by Lyme, whether or not it affects a family member, to come and learn about the latest research.

For more details including the full conference agenda and hotel information, or to register (online or by mail), visit the LDA Conference website.

The Lyme Disease Association will hold its 14th annual scientific conference, Lyme and Other Tick-Borne Diseases: Science, Research and Myth on Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd, 2013 at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul, MN.

As a member of the LDA Affiliate Network, and as a Lyme-literate psychotherapist who understands the importance of scientific research to find a cure, I encourage everyone who is interested in learning about the latest research and complex issues involved with tick-borne diseases to attend this excellent conference.
