The Quiet Epidemic – Lehigh Valley Lyme Support Group

May 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a free screening of The Quiet Epidemic documentary, followed by a Q & A.

After years of living with mysterious symptoms, a young girl from Brooklyn and a Duke University scientist are diagnosed with a disease said to not exist: Chronic Lyme disease. The Quiet Epidemic follows their search for answers, which lands them in the middle of a medical controversy. What begins as a patient story evolves into an investigation into the history of Lyme disease, dating back to its discovery in 1975.

The Quiet Epidemic premiered at the prestigious Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto in Spring 2022, where it was voted into the Top 20 out of 200+ films. It has since been featured in 20 additional festivals (Hamptons Int’l Film Festival, DOC NYC, Woodstock Film Festival, Mill Valley Film Festival) and won five festival awards. The Quiet Epidemic qualified for the 2022 Academy Awards and had a successful limited theatrical run in early 2023.
