With tick season fast approaching, how appropriate. A documentary on Lyme Disease called Under Our Skin is being screened at the Cooperative Middle School next week, April 23, starting at 6:30 p.m.
They describe the film as follows:
"A dramatic tale of microbes, medicine & money, this eye-opening film investigates the untold story of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic larger than AIDS. Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, told that their symptoms are "all in their head." Following the stories of patients and physicians as they battle for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of our health care system and its inability to cope with a silent terror under our skin."
