Phase 4 of March Madness: What you can do now

Okay we are now in Phase 4 of March Madness, here is what you can do to help support this cause:

 

PHASE 4 – MARCH MADNESS!: We need you to call the offices of the US Congressional members listed below. They all now have a copy of the IDSA patient comments document. The more members you call, the better. The more members you call, the more impact we will have. 

For More Info Please visit and join facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/events/128147847311061/

 

Please just let them know your feelings on the current IDSA Guidelines! 

 

Suggested talking points for your calls:


 

– Rescind the antiquated, inaccurate, and corrupt IDSA Lyme disease Guidelines.

– Push for the passing of Senate bill S 1381: Lyme and Tick‐Borne Disease Prevention,

Education, and Research Act of 2011 

and 


House bill HR 2557: To Provide For the Establishment of the Tick‐Borne Diseases Advisory Committee.

– Demand that doctors in every state are no longer threatened with license removal and other penalties for treating Lyme disease patients.

– Insist on better education of the entire medical community in every state regarding acute AND late-stage Lyme disease.

– Demand that a Congressional Briefing be held so that Lyme patients and our advocates get a fair chance to expose the decades-long corruption and special interests surrounding Lyme disease recognition, diagnosis and treatment. 

– Be sure to tell your own personal Lyme story and the devastating impact that this illness has had on you and your loved ones.

 

Here is a link to the IDSA Comments document, which is entitled:

The Devastation of Lives and Lies: 

Those with Lyme disease and related chronic infections respond to the 

Infectious Diseases Society of America’s (IDSA’s)

request for comments.
