Confronting Infectious Disease Doctors - Josh Cutler, Former Executive Director, The Mayday Project

**NOTE: Josh is no longer the Executive Director of the Mayday Project

Six years ago Josh Cutler had to leave his job working as a senior network engineer for the federal government due to the disabling symptoms of Lyme disease. Over the next several years, besides concentrating on his own recovery, he became a dedicated activist for those suffering with chronic Lyme.

Links and resources mentioned in this episode:

Josh and a group of chronic Lyme Disease sufferers founded the Mayday Project, which Josh now works as executive director. The Mayday project was founded to promote awareness of Lyme Disease and advocate change to the current IDSA guidelines and treatment options.

Over the past few years they have organized several successful protests which garnered media attention, and are working to gain national attention for Lyme Disease.
The Mayday Project is now a registered Non-Profit organization working to get Lyme disease recognized as a chronic illness, as well as advocating research and patient rights.

Meet Other Lyme Ninja’s

Some of my favorite interviews are with people just like you who are figuring out how to navigate life with Lyme. The wisdom, grace and humor that people display is why I call them Lyme Ninjas. They have developed extraordinary skills and experience and are always willing to share what they have learned. Lyme disease can be a harsh teacher, but it also can uncover the best in people. I love listening and I know you will too.

Below are the most recent Lyme Ninja interviews.

I practice acupuncture in Clinton, NY, a small village in the geographical center of the state. Once I became aware of Lyme and other insect carried diseases, I started seeing my chronic patients in an entirely different light. Join me as I speak with the the most fascinating people in the Lyme community. If you know someone I should interview, let me know.
