LymeHope has been instrumental in the planning of a non-partisan initiative for federal MP’s to raise their awareness of the seriousness of this disease. As you probably know, the incidence in our area is very high. (Many people in our Association have been affected). The website www.lymehope.ca has much information; there is also an option of subscribing to a newsletter.
Canada Public Health Agency now has a link on its website to guidelines developed by the International Lyme & Associated Diseases Society for diagnosis and treatment.
Of interest is the recent exchange in the Provincial Legislature between Health Minister Christine Elliot and MPP Randy Hillier on behalf of a constituent family’s considerable difficulty obtaining medical care for their son within the Ontario system.
