Lyme Disease Events in PA

May 16th: North Wales Day from 10-2pm, St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church
211 Main St., North Wales, PA 19454 We will be handing out information on Lyme Disease and answering any questions you might have.

May 17th, 3:30pm — Under Our Skin and Q&A at The Ambler Theater, 108 East Butler Avenue, Ambler, PA http://www.amblertheater.org Q&A with Guest Speakers: Dr. Ann Corson, MD, Douglas Fearn, President LDA-SEPA, and possible guest politician. Dr. Corson is one of the few family physicians treating children with Lyme; she will be able to share her experiences with treating the children affected by Lyme. Many Lyme kids are mis-diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Autistic Spectrum, Rheumotoid Arthritis, Parkinson’s, Chronic Fatigue and numerous other ailments, and treated symptomatically without addressing the underlying causes, and left to deteriorate. If you, or anyone you know, has a child affected by learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADD, autistic spectrum or other neuropsychiatric/cognitive issues, come to this special forum to learn about the “many faces of Lyme disease”. This will be the LAST FREE Community screening of Under Our Skin in the Greater Philadelphia Area. This film has been picked up for commercial release, and the Philadelphia marketplace is a target market; therefore all free screenings have been put on hold until future notice. All details are below.

This screening is co-hosted by MontCoLyme and the Ford Family. The Ford family has an 8-year old son who has been severely affected by Lyme disease. He is now under the care of Dr. Ray Jones who is featured in this film. Under Dr. Jones’ care and treatment for Lyme disease, their son has steadily improved. We are especially pleased to have with us for the Q&A, Dr. Ann Corson, MD, one of very few Lyme-literate Board-Certified Family Practice physicians treating children. Additional panelists include: Douglas Fearn, President of the Lyme Disease Association of Southeastern PA, and tentatively PA Representative Josh Shapiro. There will be lots of informational materials and resources available at the screening as well.
