Film Screening and Community Conversation: The Quiet Epidemic – Buena Vista

May 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm MDT
Share this content:

Join us for a community conversation and film screening of the award-winning documentary The Quiet Epidemic. The film features a young girl from Brooklyn and a scientist from Duke University both diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, a disease said to not exist. What begins as a patient story evolves into an investigation into the history of Lyme disease, dating back to its discovery in 1975. A paper trail of suppressed scientific research and buried documents reveal why tick-borne diseases have been allowed to quietly spread around the globe.

Monica White, President/Co-Founder of Colorado Tick-Borne Disease Awareness Association will be available for community conversation following the film screening. Light snacks will be served. This event is FREE! No registration necessary. Donations are accepted and free popcorn is served!

In collaboration with Chaffee County Public Health’s Age Strong Film Club! Colorado Tick-Borne Disease Awareness Association. Resource table will be available with education and prevention information from COTBDAA as well as Community Partners: InsectShield, Sawyer, IGeneX, Ravel Heath & Soul Tribe Yoga Collective.
