YOUR VOICE MATTERS
Because we value the opinions of patients and the general public, we asked for public comments during the drafting of the latest Guidelines for the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of Lyme Disease. We wanted to give patients the opportunity to weigh in before the guidelines were finalized. In addition to a public comment period that was open from June 26-Sept. 9, 2019, we added patient panelists to represent the patient perspective and help draft the guidelines. Feedback gathered during the public comment period was taken into consideration by the guidelines panel before the document was approved for publication.
