Guelph event offers information on Lyme disease

GUELPH – People with questions about Lyme disease and tick-borne illnesses are invited to a free public event in Guelph on Oct. 26. 

The event includes a screening of the documentary film “Under Our Skin” at 1pm followed by questions and answers at 3pm with Fergus researcher Dr. John Scott and his wife, Kit, both of whom have been infected by the disease.

Dr. Scott has spent three decades studying ticks and Lyme disease and has been recognized nationally and internationally studies. 

The film follows the stories of patients and physicians in the U.S. fighting for their health, their lives and their livelihoods in the 2000s. 

It was a semi-finalist for the Academy Award for best documentary feature. 

This event is organized by the Waterloo Region Lyme Disease Support Group. Admission is free, with donations to the support group gratefully accepted. For more information, contact:

The public is invited to attend the screening, the Q&A, or both, at Community of Christ church, 8 Mitchell St., Guelph (parking off Arthur St. N.) on Oct. 26 at 1pm.
