PTDE-developed resources discuss the scientific and clinical evidence of tick-borne diseases. We offer a wide range of materials to meet the needs of various learners. We believe that a common understanding of the evidence will foster better communication between patients and healthcare professionals. We encourage the development and use of effective disease prevention programs as well as innovative approaches for diagnosing and managing tick-borne illnesses.
The information we provide 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.
