Kenneth Liegner, MD, is a board-certified Internist with additional training in Pathology and Critical Care Medicine, practicing in Pawling, New York.  He has been actively involved in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and related disorders since 1988.  He has published articles on Lyme disease in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented poster abstracts and talks at national and international conferences on Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.  He has cared for many persons seriously ill with chronic and neurologic Lyme disease.  His work has focused on the serious morbidity and (occasional) mortality that can eventuate from this aspect of the illness.  He has emphasized the urgent need for the widespread clinical availability of improved methods of diagnostic testing and for the development of improved methods of treatment for Lyme disease in all its stages.  He holds the first U.S. patent issued proposing the application of acaricide to deer for area-wide control of deer-tick populations as a means of reducing the incidence of Lyme disease.  ILADEF invites you to join us for this prestigious event where you will have the opportunity to engage with some of the world’s leading Lyme disease researchers and clinicians as we join together to honor Dr. Liegner and address the number one vector-borne epidemic worldwide.
