The Lyme Disease Association announces its 19th annual scientific conference, Lyme & Tick-Borne Diseases: Turning the Corner Through Research, will be held October 27 & 28, 2018 in Providence, RI at the landmark Marriott Providence Downtown hotel.

Once again, Columbia University jointly provides this educational conference with the LDA.

www.LymeDiseaseAssociation.org/conference

I am particularly excited about "Immune Evasion of Lyme Disease Agents," by Dr. Pal and "The Discovery of the "Asian long-horned tick", Haemaphysalis longicornis, in New Jersey: A Combination of Perseverance, Luck and the Joy of Tick Collecting"

ALSO look forward to "Targeting the Achilles Heel of Babesia Parasites’ Mode of Survival Within Human Red Blood Cells," and "Bartonella, Toxoplasmosis, Psychiatric Effects."

Topics of the conference also include:

*phase 1 of a post-mortem study on Borrelia & the brain,
*new treatments for Borrelia persisters, *biomarkers of Lyme,
*metabolomic features of chronic illness,
*Lyme research updates,
*B cell responses in Lyme,
*Lyme pathogenesis,
*small fiber peripheral neuropathy,
*Borrelia immune evasion and persistence, *alpha-gal meat allergy,
*serologic diagnosis of TBD,
*invasive longhorn tick in the US,
*genetic modifications of ticks,
*genetically modified mice,
*Babesia treatments,
*Powassan,
*cancer research & the diagnosis and treatment of TBD;
*Borrelia miyamotoi,
*prevention strategies and vaccine development;
*Bartonella;
*other tick-borne diseases, and
*concurrent TBD case report & literature review.

The Agenda can be found here: https://lymediseaseassociation.org/conference/agenda

The Hotel is Affordable!! $169 + tax for deluxe standard rooms!

Indoor and Outdoor Pool! (No ticks swimming, I hope!! Chlorinated water - hope it's stronger than Rocephin!)

I hope to see you there. There will be a nice reception where we can talk with fellow Lyme folks.

Imagine - Nineteen years of the highest level professionals speaking to us about the significant progress being made - it's going our way, Folks!

Made me laugh!

If you do go, kidding aside, be sure to look up OptiMisTick! Lovely lady who is sweet, generous and helpful beyond belief.

She has done more for the Lyme community than you can even imagine. A hero to all she is.

Smoochiez dear lady TC. But you got it backwards. You have carried so many of us, informed us, lifted spirits, wrote papers, done research ....

Shucks, without you I'd still be thinking MTHFR was a bad curse!!

BTW- I've heard from two people already who were there and have been to nearly all of the previous conferences and this one was reported by both to be the "best of all".

Good job!

I actually thought so too, and the presentations covered very varied and different topics, with some speakers even injecting humor.

I remember back when I could no longer detect humor and so this was a welcome contrast.

If I don't forget, I will post a few takeaways
soon.

I'm glad others thought well of the conference and that it sold out, as in other years, but still managed to squeeze a few extra folks in (do not count on this in the future, register early folks) but I don't know if the extras got rooms in the same hotel as it was just so busy with a wedding and a smaller conference.

The hotel was really decent at a well-discounted rate for such a nice hotel.
