Lyme disease is the most commonly reported vector-borne disease in the United States. The number of confirmed and probable reported cases more than doubled from 1998 to 2018. Understanding Lyme disease’s epidemiology and clinical features is valuable for clinicians in emerging areas, clinicians in endemic regions who need a refresher course, and healthcare providers in non-endemic regions who see travel-related cases.

During this COCA Call, presenters will review updates in Lyme disease epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention and share new educational tools for both healthcare providers and their patients.
