Physician Training Grants

Each year, GLA provides grant support to physicians and other healthcare professionals to attend the International Lyme and Associated Diseases (ILADS) Annual Conference. GLA has funded hundreds of clinicians to attend this major conference to learn about the latest clinical updates. These clinicians gain important Lyme disease knowledge and information to treat patients in their communities.

Physician Training Program

Over the years, the GLA Physician Training Program has provided grants to hundreds of clinicians to study alongside physicians experienced in treating Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. This peer-to-peer training program provided clinicians an opportunity to learn how to properly diagnose and treat Lyme and other co-infections from experts in the field. This program helped equip clinicians with the necessary skills to effectively treat and care for Lyme patients in their community.
