TUNKHNOCK — Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) may be the most widespread, misunderstood and potentially dangerous epidemic that most people know little about. Which is why the Dietrich Theater will bring a movie about it to the big screen.
A free showing of “Someone You Love, The HPV Epidemic,” is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 25. It will be followed by a panel discussion. This presentation and free popcorn are sponsored by the Northeast Immunization Coalition and the Wyoming County Cancer/Tobacco Partnership.
Reservations may be made by calling 570-996-1500.
The film features five women whose lives were interrupted and changed forever by this deadly virus. After the film, a panel of experts will entertain questions and engage further discussion.
The panel will include Dr. Christopher Andres, of the Guthrie Medical Group in Tunkhannock; Dr. Karen Arscott, of Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine; nurse practitioner Valerie Bell, of the Pennsylvania Department of Health STD Clinics, and Dr. Erroll Goldstein, of Geisinger Medical Group, Tunkhannock.
