    During the last thirty years, medical researchers have identified startling new facts of how bacteria survive in nature, man and beast. We humans depend on biofilm communities, the predominant microbiological life form, but they sometimes work against us by contributing to chronic disease. So how do we keep these life forms in check when they cause chronic wounds? Periodontal infections? Hospital infections? And myriad other conditions that cost our country more than $100 billion annually?

    We’ll delve into these medical problems with our panel members, watch short films and invite your questions as we focus on one of America’s biggest healthcare challenges.
