To educate the people in the Medical Community on research findings and facts surrounding Lyme and its co-infections. To offer support to sufferers and families of Lyme patients on an on-going basis, and most importantly, to work with governing bodies and assist in making permanent changes to ouLymeChat Forum.htmr existing protocols for the diagnosis and treatment plans for Lyme in Canada.
