PTDE is renovating this site to better meet our mission.   

Please check back in late fall to see what we’ve accomplished.

Partnership for Tick-borne Diseases Education is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to providing educational learning and materials about tick-borne diseases based on scientific research.

Our mission is to prevent Lyme and other tick-borne diseases and to diminish the long-term consequences patients with these infections often face.

Our goal is to provide high-quality educational materials on Lyme disease and other tick-borne illness to a wide audience. Most of the information is intended for the general public yet some articles are meant to meet the needs of a specific group.

Our information is scientifically-based and current. Because the scientific understanding of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases continues to evolve, our materials will be updated as new information becomes available.

Thanks for visiting.


LymeCME.info is a website dedicated to bringing reliable scientific and medical information to the attention of healthcare professionals.

The accredited CME learning modules offered are intended to help clinicians stay up to date with recent developments in this field.

News & Updates
Controversy surrounding Lyme disease

We want readers to be aware of the disease itself but to also be aware of the debate. Most importantly, both the general public and my medical colleagues need to be aware of this fact: much of what is proclaimed as “truth” in Lyme disease is based on insufficient evidence. There simply are not enough properly performed studies to establish any single approach to the illness as scientifically correct. This is especially true when it comes to the issue of persistent Lyme disease.

Facts first

Lyme disease is a complicated illness caused by a complex bacterium; it is not the black-and-white illness portrayed in simplistic review articles and lectures.

Our goal is to present content relating to Tick-borne Diseases that is well-sourced information that Primary Care doctors should consider reliable.
