ILADEF (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Educational Foundation) is a nonprofit, international foundation that promotes medical education and research related to Lyme and associated diseases. It supports the educational and research goals of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society. Our diverse medical professional group educates and supports those who treat complex diseases with infectious etiologies. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our non-profit organization by limiting financial resource flow from our generous donors in this time of uncertainty. This pandemic has also provided us with a unique opportunity to develop and implement education for those we serve, the professionals who treat complex disease. They also research and study complex diseases to bring valid and clinically relevant information to those serving on the frontlines. GoFundMe funds received will be used exclusively for the purpose of providing educational resources and training for our medical and research professionals. Our goal to finalize a certification program to distinguish the expert clinicians in the field of identification and treatment of tick-borne diseases will be catalyzed with these funds. This education will ultimately help those patients served by these professionals to have better quality of life, better hope for healing, and better strategies for comprehensive care. We thank those who support us and will use these funds to teach front line providers in a way that positively impacts the lives of many!
