Interview with Dr. Oz, Oprah & Friends, airs Nov. 26th

Last month, I was interviewed by Dr. Mehmet Oz from Oprah & Friends’ Network, along with Washington, DC medical correspondent, Kathy Fowler. The interview is now scheduled to broadcast nationally on SiriusXM radio on Wednesday, November 26th–the busiest travel day of the year. So millions of Americans, stuck in Thanksgiving holiday traffic, will have the benefit of raising their awareness about Lyme disease–a great cause for which to be thankful!
In an unprecedented interview, Dr. Oz puts the national spotlight on UNDER OUR SKIN and refers to the film as a new paradigm in medical filmmaking. Dr. Oz and his wife/producer, Lisa, conduct the informal but informative interview in their cozy Lincoln Center studio in New York. A prominent heart surgeon at Columbia University and regular guest on the Oprah Show, Dr. Oz has been called “America’s doctor” and gives the film and Lyme cause heightened awareness and credibility. This is a major opportunity for our film and the effort to put Lyme disease in the limelight.
We urge you to listen in. The show will air Wednesday, November 26th at 1am, 7am, and 6pm EST. Oprah & Friends producers say people who don’t subscribe to the satellite radio can also listen by clicking here for a free 30 Day XM radio trial. Register and you can listen online.
During the broadcast, Dr. Oz also asks Lyme patients in the audience to share their own stories. With enough of a response from the Lyme community, we hope to pique the interest of The Oprah Show, where Dr. Oz is a regular guest contributor. So be sure to tune in and write in! And remember to be courteous, thanking Dr. Oz for his interest in UNDER OUR SKIN and Lyme disease.
