Wormser Out, Who’s In?
For the first time when you visit the US Department of Health and Human Services website you will not see Dr. Gary Wormser’s name on the Tick-Borne Diseases Working Group.
In all my years of Lyme advocacy, seeing Wormser not on the Lyme panel which might be due to a petition that Lymedisease.org started, is probably the biggest thing I have seen yet!
So now how do we as Lyme patients assure that who replaces him is more Lyme literate? I am not sure the answer to this or who is following up on this. As I get more information I will post it here.
Read these following articles to learn more:
- HHS says Wormser “has declined the invitation” to serve on Lyme panel
- Your voice has been heard–Wormser is off the federal Lyme panel
- Remove Wormser from federal TBD working group
Thank you Lymedisease.org and to all who signed!
