“Under Our Skin” showing in HMB 11/8/08

Thanks, Julie, for sending this reminder to me.  Her husband Rob and his sister Jane will host the first screening in San Mateo County of the award winning documentary about tick-born Lyme disease tomorrow evening.  Coastsiders are surrounded by numerous hiking trails and open space; now we have an opportunity to get some first hand information on this topic.

Robert Buelteman, an award winning photographer and long time Montara resident, has been battling Lyme disease for over a year now.  He shares a little of his story in this SF Chronicle story last May.

Local film showings like this and others are sponsored by Half Moon Bay’s Reba Vanderpool at The Visionary Edge.  Per The Visionary Edge’s full press release, this film has already won awards, including the FREDDIE Award, Infectious Diseases Category, International Health & Medical Media Awards (to be awarded November 14, 2008.
