Dr. Charles Ray Jones turns 90; still helping kids with Lyme disease
Dr. Charles Ray Jones is the world’s leading pediatric Lyme specialist. He has treated well over 15,000 children from around the globe, over a period of more than four decades.
He has helped countless more, by training doctors and sharing his vast knowledge at conferences for both professionals and patients.
Despite years of harassment from the medical establishment, now, at age 90, Dr. Jones continues to see young patients at his office in New Haven, Connecticut. Many parents have credited him with saving the lives of their children.
His battles with medical authorities were documented in the 2008 Lyme documentary “Under Our Skin.” Here’s a clip from that:

LymeDisease.org joins the rest of the Lyme community in wishing a happy birthday to Dr. Jones–and we hope he’ll continue to help children with Lyme for many years to come.
