Call for Congressional Oversight of CDC Division of Vector-Borne Diseases

WASHINGTON, DC, March 8— Lyme patients and advocates from across the U.S. will gather for a “We the People” rally at the U.S. Capitol on May 19. The next day, simultaneous solidarity rallies will be held at the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) headquarters in Arlington, VA, and at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) headquarters in Atlanta, GA.

The events are organized by the Mayday Project Lyme patient advocacy group in collaboration with advocates and advocacy groups throughout the U.S. They are calling for Congressional oversight of CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases, which is responsible for policy on Lyme disease. They want an end to CDC-IDSA conflicts of interest and they want treatment guidelines based on science rather than the vested interests of IDSA members.
