Arapahoe Libraries is Hosting Film Screening and Community Conversation: The Quiet Epidemic

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.

A panel of subject matter experts will lead a community conversation following the film screening. Seating opens 30 minutes before the film starts. Light snacks will be served. This event is FREE, however Registration is required.
