Giveaway: “Under Our Skin”

posted by Nell Minow

There will be more new cases of Lyme disease in the US this year than AIDS, Avian flu, and West Nile virus combined.  Its effects can be devastating.  But Lyme disease does not get the support or research dollars proportionate to its reach or impact.  This powerful documentary includes interviews with patients and doctors and explores the ignorance and conflicts of interest that have prevented this disease from getting the attention it deserves.  Scarier than any horror film, this is a gripping story.

I have two copies to give away.  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Lyme in the subject line and don’t forget your address.  US addresses only, sorry.  I’ll pick a winner at random on March 23.
