Downloadable Resources

Our website is chock full of valuable resources, but it can be overwhelming to sift through everything on your own and not everyone has 24/7 internet access to allow for time to read everything. So, we have formatted all of our educational information into downloadable PDF format so that you can pick what you need or download everything, whatever you want. These are the same documents that we hand out at our monthly meetings and at our community education events.

Medical Guidelines for Lyme

International Lyme and 
Associated Disease Society (ILADS)
ILADS is the leading medical organization on how to diagnose and treat tick-borne infections. The ILADS guidelines are the only medical guidelines for Lyme disease and its related infections that are approved by the Institutes of Medicine (IOS) and that validate and made available on the National Guideline Clearinghouse, leaving them as the as the only set of guidelines considered to fully encompass the breadth of scientific evidence currently available. Patients are encouraged to download the guidelines and share them with their physicians, particularly when seeking a diagnosis. In a system where up-to-date education can be scarce when it comes to tick-borne diseases, such guidance can be a lifesaver!
