UNDER OUR SKIN: A Health Care Nightmare
Did you know that Lyme disease cases have been reported in every state in the country? And that the disease is often misdiagnosed as other illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or multiple sclerosis? And an increasing number of cases of Lyme disease are being reported locally?
Make sure you know about Lyme disease.
Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary, UNDER OUR SKIN, which exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most serious and controversial epidemics of our time.
