IDSA Member Testifies at New York State Hearing on Lyme Disease

Sunil Sood, MD, a pediatric ID specialist in New York and a member of the joint IDSA, American College of Rheumatology and American Academy of Neurology panel developing Lyme disease guidelines, represented IDSA at a public hearing of the New York State Joint-Senate Task Force on Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases. State Senator Sue Serino, a strong advocate for evidence-based treatment and diagnostics for Lyme disease, invited IDSA to participate in this hearing, which was aimed at identifying best practices for combating the spread of Lyme and tick-borne diseases in New York.

Dr. Sood presented up-to-date scientific data on Lyme disease and helped dispel myths about chronic Lyme infections. Multiple physicians at the hearing supported IDSA’s positions.

Any IDSA members working on state Lyme disease policy are welcome to utilize IDSA’s Lyme disease primer for state policymakers, which contains useful information to help educate elected officials about Lyme disease.
