UNF Lyme Community Awareness event April 9 in Jacksonville, Florida


Mandy from Multi-Award Winning Lyme Disease Documentary to Appear at Upcoming UNF Under Our Skin Event with Researcher Dr. Kerry Clark


The University of North Florida in Jacksonville will present the award-winning documentary Under Our Skin on Friday, April 9th at 5 p.m. Admission is free, but tickets are reserved and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed and are told that their symptoms are ``all in their head.'' The documentary follows the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and livelihoods and brings into focus a haunting picture of the health care system. ``UNDER OUR SKIN'' made it to the short list of 15 films nominated for an Academy Award.


An open question-and-answer session will follow the film, with Mandy Hughes, one of the film's featured subjects, and Dr. Kerry Clark, a public health research professor in UNF's Brooks College of Health. This event is free and open to the public.


The event is presented jointly by the UNF Brooks College of Health Department of Public Health; The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Center for Ethics, Public Policy and the Professions; Northeast Florida Lyme Association; Academic Affairs Inquiry & Insight Lecture Series; and the American Democracy Project.


Free tickets are available now. For further details and to reserve your tickets, click below to read the University of North Florida official press release:

I received this note from the director of the
Georgia Lyme Disease Association:


(The GA LDA) ...would like to get as many southeastern states as possible represented, just to help show what a big problem it is across our region. UNF has been doing a good job publicizing the event on tv and radio, so we hope there will be a big turnout, including medical professionals, politicians and public health officials. (But really, it is a community awareness event.)

You can read about this event on our home page of our website (see below for address).

It might be a good opportunity for all of us to meet and do some strategizing, too!

Would any of you like to (and be able to) attend?


LS, Director
Georgia Lyme Disease Association
