The mission of the Lyme Disease Advisory Committee (LDAC) is to make
recommendations to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on
strategies to enhance the awareness of the public and the medical community
about Lyme disease in California, and thereby reduce exposure to, and suffering
from, this and other tick-borne diseases.
The Committee is made up of members representing the California
Lyme Disease Association, Lyme disease support network, university researchers,
the Mosquito and Vector Control Association of California, the California
Medical Association, California Conference of Local Health Officers, and CDPH.
A broad range of views is represented on this Committee, allowing for important
exchanges of ideas on Lyme disease
The next LDAC meeting will be held as a conference call in the spring of 2021 (date and time to be determined). Please contact VBDS at (916) 552-9730 if
you have any questions.
