We are deeply saddened to report that Dr. Gregory Bach passed away on January 21, 2022. He was an outspoken advocate for
Lyme patients, helping to introduce legislation at the state and federal
levels, as well as serving on the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of
Health’s Tick and Lyme Disease Task Force. He was a strong advocate for Lyme
patients and will be greatly missed.
The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) has established a memorial fund in Dr. Bach’s honor for donations to
support Lyme education and training. You can donate here. Patients can search for a provider in their area by going to this ILADS page
