Turn the Corner Foundation: The Fight Against Lyme Disease

This short 6 minute video was uploaded in 2008 and includes excerpts from “Under Our Skin,” the best primer on Lyme Disease out there.  It’s important to see our past to understand our present.  We have far to go, but many courageous and gifted people have done so much for the Lyme community.  My favorite part is when Dr. Corson, obviously infused with life changing direction from Dr. Burrascano, announced,

“I feel like I need to educate an army.  I need to train an army because that’s what it’s gonna take to treat all of the patients that need to be cared for.”   

Eight years have come and gone with Dr. Corson’s prophetic words.  The good news is slowly more doctors are becoming trained by *ILADS to effectively treat MSIDS (multi systemic infectious disease syndrome), but she’s right, so many more are needed.
