The Colorado Film Tour of The Quiet Epidemic would not be possible without the all the partnerships, our all-volunteer board, volunteers from our communities and the sponsorship and support we receive from businesses and organizations, including the medical care providers that support our community!
This powerful documentary film is an opportunity to educate those that are yet unaware, give voice to those that are already suffering, and serves as a call to action for the changes needed in healthcare and society to prevent, recognize, and adequately treat Lyme & other tick-borne diseases at the earliest possible stage…as well as understand and care for those already impacted with chronic/persistent Lyme & other tick-borne diseases and conditions.
Much thanks goes out Winslow and Lindsay for making such a powerful, thoughtful, educational and provoking film…ripe for change-makers to embrace! And for joining us in CO!
Thanks to all of our partners that are helping us bring this film to various communities throughout CO! Sawyer for sponsoring the film tour, Chaffee County Public Health & Partnership for Community Action for partnering for the screenings in the heart of the Rockies, Wilkinson Library for making this film available in the secluded and beautiful SW CO, Telluride community, Rocky Mountain Women’s film Festival for hosting in Manitou Springs! And to our year-round community partners at Sawyer, Insect Shield, Ravel Health, IGeneX, and Functional Recovery and Enhancement for supporting all of our work!
Last, but not least, so much thanks to our Lyme community, doctors, patients, advocates and gracious volunteers for supporting each of these events!
The Quiet Epidemic: Broomfield
The Quiet Epidemic hit Colorado with a bang at Broomfield Auditorium on May 3rd. The theater was flooded with Lyme patients, caregivers, and other concerned citizens in the community. All agreed…this is a most powerful film… calling for the change needed for over 40 years!
