A three-day conference in Ottawa with politicians, patients and scientists will attempt to determine a national framework for how Lyme Disease is dealt with in Canada.  So far patients have been excluded from discussions about how the disease should be handled, but this topic will be discussed at the conference.

Currently, many Canadians with Lyme Disease have to travel to the U.S. to get proper treatment.
