GLENS FALLS - An acute, progressive, debilitating affliction is spreading in the public undiagnosed, according to the documentary film Under Our Skin, which will be showing at 2:30 p.m. March 6 in Crandall Library.
"This film sheds light on an epidemic that is in our homes, schools and community," said film sponsor Christina Fisk, whose child is enduring the illness - Lyme Disease.
The award-winning documentary, sponsored by the Adirondack Lyme Disease Foundation, presents a disturbing expose about how our medical system is failing to address one of the most serious epidemics of our time, Fisk said.
People with chronic Lyme Disease are often mis-diagnosed as having chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, fibromyalgia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis, arthritis, or sometimes they receive no diagnosis, she said.
The March 6 showing is offered at no charge. Members of the Lyme Disease Foundation will be available to answer questions after the film. Details are available online at www.adirondacklymediseasefoundation.com.
