May is Lyme Disease awareness month and CanLyme is helping to raise awareness by hosting an online screening of The Quiet Epidemic, a documentary highlighting the struggles that patients encounter when trying to understand and recover from chronic Lyme disease. CanLyme is also hosting a live Q&A panel discussion at the end of the screening week.
The Quiet Epidemic
“THE QUIET EPIDEMIC follows a young girl from Brooklyn and a Duke University scientist both diagnosed with a disease said to not exist: Chronic Lyme disease. Their search for answers lands them in the middle of a vicious medical debate. 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.”
