About me

Introduction In the challenge to understand Lyme Disease and its co-infections, Camp Other is looking to move away from the highly controversial and politically charged divide between the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) camp and the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) camp.
