Open Door Church hosts film on river blindness

The Carter Center’s River Blindness Elimination Program has scheduled a screening and discussion of “Dark Forest, Black Fly” 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday at Open Door Church, 1667 Miramonte Ave., Mountain View.

Moses Katabarwa, Ph.D., senior program epidemiologist at the Carter Center, will introduce the program, which highlights river blindness, the eye and skin disease spread by the black fly. Global health experts once thought the disease was impossible to eliminate in Africa, but recent work successfully challenged that belief, bringing hope to 120 million people at risk.

To RSVP for the screening, call Ahna Machan at (206) 728-6685 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
