I have been writing to Commissioner Harry Chen, M.D. and the Vermont Department of Health to encourage them to make changes to the VDH web section for Lyme and Tick-borne Diseases. I have also requested that the VDH establish a formal interdisciplinary committee to vet information about tick-borne disease and provide Vermonters and their physicians with a source of accurate information on the debate about Lyme disease and treatment protocols.
The Burlington Free Press published my letter to the editor about this subject. If you would like a copy of my report to the Vermont Department of Health or of my letter to Dr. Chen please contact me and I will send it to you.
