The Harford County Lyme Disease Support Group, Inc. & Highland Presbyterian Church are presenting the award-winning Lyme disease documentary “Under Our Skin” Sunday, Nov. 7 at the Highland Presbyterian Church, 701 Highland Road, Street. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. and the film starts at 2 p.m. The film runs two hours and includes a short intermission. The event is open to the public and admission is free. The Harford County Lyme Disease Support Group provided this description of the movie:

“A gripping tale of microbes, medicine and money, Under Our Skin exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most controversial and fastest growing epidemics of our time. Each year thousands of people go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, and untreated.  They are often told that there is “no such thing as chronic Lyme disease”.  The film brings into focus a haunting picture of the healthcare system and a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients, while it highlights stories of patients and physicians who are fighting for their lives and livelihoods.”
