Dr. Daniel Cameron – Leadership Role
Daniel Cameron, MD, is a board-certified primary care physician and epidemiologist, who has 30 years of experience as a clinician, teacher, and researcher. He has been at the forefront of Lyme disease research and treatment since the late 1980s, operating a private practice, Dr. Daniel Cameron & Associates, in Mount Kisco, NY.
Dr. Cameron is the current and past-president of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), a nonprofit medical society, dedicated to the diagnosis and appropriate treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
He is the lead author of two peer-reviewed treatment guidelines for Lyme disease. ILADS Treatment Guidelines for the Management of Lyme Disease was published in 2004, with a newer, updated edition released in 2014.

In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Cameron has shared his expertise at legislative hearings, educational forums, and public awareness events.
“Recommending appropriate outdoor dress, environmental control, and short-term doses of antibiotics are not enough to prevent chronic Lyme disease. Physicians need to adopt a broader perspective in order to help patients avoid years of chronic, debilitating illness.” ─ Dr. Daniel Cameron
