Unfortunately, our real-time Lyme disease case study had to be cancelled (lack of commitment). The good news is that the case study’s history, doctor responses, Lyme Disease drug information, and how we wanted to start his journey to wellness has been recorded and is valuable information for those who want additional insight into what patients may experience. You may watch and download the notes by using this link:  Class Notes and Audio/Video
