Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

A documentary from Sausalito director
Andy Abrahams Wilson.

An infectious film about microbes, money and medicine.

One of the most controversial illnesses in the history of medicine, Lyme disease may be the fastest growing infectious disease in the United States. Yet each year thousands are misdiagnosed - many of them told that their symptoms are "all in their head." This upcoming documentary investigates the shocking human, medical, and political dimensions of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic destroying countless numbers of lives. A case study of the dangers of the confluence of money and medicine, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of our healthcare system and its inability to cope with a biological terror under our skin.

You are welcome Nance. It is time for this "secret" to come out of the closet and the IDSA's financial ties to not wanting people to get diagnosed and treated out in the open as well. They recently got in trouble for their "secret". I had to wait light years to get diagnosed and I don't want other people to have to suffer like I have. This disease robs people of their health their life their friends and cleans out their entire bank account to boot. It does not have to continue this way.

"Last May, the Connecticut Attorney General found the IDSA Lyme disease treatment guidelines’ panel had conflicts of interest, engaged in exclusionary conduct, and suppressed scientific evidence. The investigation resulted in a settlement forcing the IDSA to reconstitute a balanced panel free of conflicts of interest under the oversight of an ombudsman to monitor conflicts of interest. No input from patients or treating physicians was permitted in selection."

Looks like the IDSA is still operating in the dark ages in 2009.... it gets old.
