Dear Lyme Disease Advocates and Patients,

As you know, many patients with Lyme disease are not promptly diagnosed and/or appropriately treated for their infection. Although many factors contribute to the problem, in my opinion, the primary cause is that healthcare providers haven’t received adequate training on tick-borne diseases.

Together, we can change that. is a website built specifically for the purpose of offering accredited, evidence-based continuing medical education (CME) modules on Lyme and other tick-borne diseases (TBD) for doctors and other healthcare professionals. Doctors will like the convenience of on-demand learning that’s available on PC and mobile devices. The modules I developed for LymeCME provide a concise review of the evidence, highlighting points that are especially relevant to patient care. And, they’re free!

Here’s where you come in.  Because doctors are unlikely to find on their own, you’ll need to tell them about the site and encourage them to take the various modules. It’s important that you project a positive, helpful attitude when you do this. I’ve included a sample letter that you can personalize. The goal is to keep the message brief and upbeat.  Sample letter:

Thank you in advance for your support; working together, we can make a real and vital difference.
