I received this via email .
It is official! The Bryn Mawr Film Institute will be screening Under
Our Skin on 9/29, at 7:30pm -- this is a big theater -- 350 seats -- we
would love to fill them all!! MontCoLyme is sponsoring a Q&A with an
esteemed panel immediately following the film:
· a local family featured in the film
· a local Lyme Literate MD, Dr.C#####, MD
· a Temple University professor, Dr. Lynne Andersson,
addressing the ethical issues involved
Please get the word out to anyone you know, especially medical
professionals, and those affected by Lyme disease. This is an excellent
opportunity for the public to learn more about the broad spectrum of
views on Lyme and related Tick-Borne Infections, and the disease impact
in our communities.
If anyone can help to distribute this information through schools or
other organizations, please let me know- montcolyme@aol. com
<mailto:montcolyme@aol. com> , and we will provide you with
school-oriented flyers that can be emailed, as well as fliers for
distribution or placement in newsletters.
Under Our Skin, was just awarded "Best Feature Film" at the
International Health Film Festival in Kos, Greece, the home of
Hippocrates, the father of medicine. The film won "for advocating at
the frontier of medicine... The film provides an activist challenge to
the medical profession on ethical review standards, long term treatment
and the necessary attentiveness to those who suffer from Lyme
And, PA's lyme cases reported to the CDC, are already up 48% over last
year, topping 5,000, the most reported cases of any state this year,
with a full quarter in the year to go. YIKES!!
Hope to see you there! - Julia Wagner, montcolyme@aol. com
