102 Maple St., Evansville
Come and see Under Our Skin at Creekside Place in Evansville.
This award-winning documentary film tells the controversial story about Lyme Disease. Each year, thousands of people go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their painful and debilitating symptoms are “in their head.”
The film follows the stories of Lyme patients fighting for their lives and Lyme physicians fighting for their livelihoods in a health care system driven by insurance companies. Short-listed for an Oscar in 2009, Under Our Skin has been named “best documentary” at film festivals around the country. The Los Angeles Times calls it “eye-opening, frightening, powerful stuff.” Running time is 103 minutes.
Admission is free.
Mike Nickel, past president of the Wisconsin Lyme Network, will lead a discussion following the film. The Wisconsin Lyme Network is an educational group dedicated to providing support, promoting research, and raising awareness about Lyme and associated diseases. Nickel is also moderator of an online Lyme support board which currently serves hundreds of people from all over Wisconsin. He lives in Wausau.
