I think this conference holds more scientific weight to it than other Lyme disease-related conferences I've seen, so if anyone is going to be in Philly and attends, please take notes to share with us all.
(I won't be able to attend as I have a previous commitment scheduled before I knew this conference was going to be held at this time in October.)
