The Lyme Disease Association will hold the 20th annual scientific conference:

Lyme & Other Tick-Borne Diseases: 20th Annual Scientific Update for Clinicians & Researchers, on September 21 & 22, 2019 in Philadelphia, PA at the Hilton Penn’s Landing on the banks of the Delaware. Columbia University jointly provides the conference.

The General Information page can be found here:

https://lymediseaseassociation.org/lda-conferences/lda-conf-2019/2019-annual-scientific-conference-lyme-tick-borne-diseases/

I am so very excited about the Agenda, which can be found here:

https://lymediseaseassociation.org/lda-conferences/lda-conf-2019/2019-lda-columbia-conference-agenda/

The conference rate currently is a cool $275 until the day before the Conference.

There are still some seats open!!

And this year it will be held in Philadelphia, PA at the Hilton, Penn’s Landing, a very nice venue!

Holiday Inn Express Penns Landing is just down the way and has comparable rates to conference rates, now that the Hilton Conference rates have expired. I’m sure there are rooms at the Hilton at regular rate, as well.

There are MORE talks on the agenda than listed below, but I want to highlight some talks I am PARTICULARLY excited about hearing:

If you are having trouble reading this, be sure to see:

Dr. Ingeborg Dziedzic, of Pleasant Vision Ophthalmology Practice,Pleasantville, NY, who will speak on Potential late ophthalmic consequences of Lyme Disease.


Our friend and Lyme and TBD Center director, Dr. Brian A. Fallon, MD, Columbia University will inform us on Study of Neuroinflammatory and Somatic Disorders, something we all need to know more about!


Be still my heart!!

Dr. Adrian Baranchuk, Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada will speak on
Systematic approach for the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme carditis

The tickborne diseases have become such a problem in Canada!


Dr. Margaret R. MacDonald, of The Rockefeller University, New York will enlighten us on what we need to know about Powassan virus: an emerging tick-borne threat


Dr. Paige Armstrong, CDC, speaking on Spotted Fever Rickettsioses (SFR) will discuss the range of diseases that fall within this group. Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) is the most severe and well known of the SFR, but there are other emerging species, such as R. parkeri and 364D.


Mark J. Soloski, PhD, Co-Director for Basic Research, Lyme Disease Research Center at
Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, will illuminate Host Immune Response in Lyme Borreliosis


The word I want to hear more on:

Emir Hodzic, DVM, MSc, PhD, Director, Real-Time PCR Research & Diagnostics Core Facility at
University of California-Davis, CA, will present on Post-treatment PERSISTENCE of antimicrobial tolerant replicatively-attenuated Borrelia burgdorferi in a mouse model


HOW MANY OF US need to hear this:

Philip Strandwitz, PhD. CEO and Co-founder, Holobiome, Inc. and Visiting Scholar, Antimicrobial Discovery Center, Department of Biology, Northeastern University

The Gut-Brain-Axis – Potential Therapeutic Targets


OH YES!

Eric Storch, PhD and Professor and McIngvale Presidential Endowed Chair
Vice Chair & Head, Psychology; Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Baylor College of Medicine, Texas

WILL speak on OCD!!

I have to print the whole summary of his talk:

There is a well-documented link between obsessive-compulsive symptoms and various immunological conditions, where the latter confers additional burden above and beyond the illness alone. This talk will focus on what is known about the link between immune disorders including Lyme and obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Particular attention will be given to discussing pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with streptococcus as a potential model for understanding this linkage. Discussion will be provided regarding the nature of standard therapies as well as more immune- modulating approaches.

I'm Excited. I hope to SEE YOU THERE!!

BTW if anyone is interested in attending and staying just down the way at Holiday Inn Express, they have a shuttle that will take you to the conference and their rates, when last checked, were about equal to the Conference rate at the Hilton.

I am also told the Hilton shuttle will pick up at Embassy Suites Center City, on Ben Franklin Parkway.

I have not verified this, just giving info to check out as another option for keeping costs down.

For those waiting to feel well enough to come to the LDA conference referenced above -

The current reduced conference fee will end Sept. 19th, not 20th.

Register online, quickest way.
