Prominent New York-based board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist calls Lyme disease a human rights concern.
Mar 22, 2018
Dr. Frid is a New York-based board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist who specializes in infection-induced autoimmune disorders. I first met Dr. Frid in Amsterdam last May, where she was speaking at the Lyme disease awareness event Something Inside So Strong. We had a chance to speak about Lyme disease there and then again at a national Lyme disease awareness event in Ottawa, Canada in June. I was struck by Dr. Frid’s patient-focused approach, and especially by her assertion that Lyme disease is “a human rights concern.”
In the following three-part interview, Dr. Frid and I discuss myriad topics associated with chronic illness and Lyme disease, beginning with the June 15 issue of the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report(MMWR) and related news coverage.
