FYI -- The Philadelphia Daily News wrote a short article on the Under Our Skin screening in Bryn Mawr tomorrow night (9/29, 7:30pm), 824 W. Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA, 19010. Dr. C was interviewed, and I've been in contact with the journalist regarding a follow-up to this story, that focuses on some of the local stories. As part of this -- please log on to this story and add a comment with your personal experience with Lyme disease -- let them know this really is a bigger story.

The Main Line Times has also covered the story, primarily just as a featured film.

If you can, make it to the screening, and let others know about it. The panel discussion afterwards, in addition to Dr. C, will also feature a Temple University Professor addressing the ethical issues in the current situation with Lyme - these are not "hypothetical" but rather real and immediate concerns to many affected by Lyme disease.

Ok I think I got an email out to evreyone who posted from PA on the "Where is everybody from" thread.  I told them about this post and so they can come look at it if they want. Some didn't have emails so couldn't let them know.  Hope this helps.
