Breakout Sessions

Living Well with Lyme: The Power of Nutrition

All patients living with chronic Lyme are familiar with the symptoms of joint pain, swelling, fatigue and headaches. This patient workshop, led by Vicki Kobliner, MS, RDN, focuses on nutrition and its central role in battling these symptoms and strengthening one’s immune system.

"N-of-1 trials” for Patients with Chronic Lyme Disease: A Participatory Design Workshop

We will give you a crash course in the basics of “N-of-1 trials”: what they are, how they work, when they can help patients choose between two treatments. We will ask for your input about important health issues facing chronic lyme patients and where you believe N-of-1 trials may be most helpful.
