DEBUGGING THE BODY AND BRAIN
September 22-25, 2022 (Thursday-Sunday)
Please join us for the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) 23rd Annual Scientific Conference. This year’s conference will be held Thursday through Sunday, September 22-25, 2022. We are excited to be returning to the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando, Florida, the same venue as last year. The facility is centrally located, with easy access to the airport and all of Orlando’s attractions.
We are looking forward to bringing the ILADS community together again after our extended time apart. We are excited to welcome you in Orlando and provide a fantastic conference experience. Consider bringing your family to make it a vacation. The resort is just a 10 minute drive from world famous theme parks and our hotel rate is valid three days before and after the meeting (pending availability).
The mission of ILADS is to educate healthcare professionals about the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne diseases. This event is intended for medical professionals including MDs, DOs, NDs, PAs, NPs, RNs, LCSWs, DCs, psychologists, and other medical professionals assisting Lyme and related disease patients.
New Format for 2022
With so much to catch up on and relationships to rekindle, we are changing up the format of this year’s conference to give you more free time to connect with colleagues. We will have an extended break during lunch to allow attendees to network, meet with exhibitors or just relax by the pool and enjoy the hotel amenities. Programming will take place in the mornings with an extended break around the noon lunch hour. It will resume later in the afternoon and run until early evening. On Sunday, our program will end at noon to accommodate your travel schedule.
