To read the Workshop Summaries, click on the link at the top and look in the righthand column - you'll see gray buttons that say "Download Report" or "Read Report Online For Free". If you want to download a pdf of the report, you'll need to supply your email address and other info. If you just want to view it online, click "Read Report Online For Free" and there will be no request for personal information.
Once you select "Read Report Online For Free", by the way, you have an opportunity to download a 21 page summary of the report (direct download) by clicking on a link for it on the lefthand column. Otherwise, the full report is 468 pages long.
[CO update: The 21 page summary gives the barest of outlines of what was discussed, along with a list of those who attended - you are much better off reading the 468 page report.]
One thing to note here is that this appears to be a report on what was discussed at the Institute of Medicine (IOM) workshop on tickborne diseases in October 2010 and not a final position piece stating the IOM's consensus on how Lyme disease and tickborne infections should be approached through research, prevention, or treatment.
