“Chagas/ A Hidden Affliction” to air on PBS

Shot partly in Virginia and Maryland, and including an interview with U.Va. cardiology fellow Dr. Rajan Patel, this documentary from Charlottesville filmmaker Ricardo Preve tells the story of Chagas disease,
a parasitic infection that affects nearly 20 million worldwide, and kills 50,000 people per year. Formerly found only in Latin America, it has now become a health concern in Europe and North America, where it still affects primarily the Latino migrant community, but has the potential to become more common. “Chagas” airs on Friday, Feb. 24 at 10 p.m. on PBS stations WHTJ, WVPT, WCVE and WCVW.
