|On Wednesday, November 28, 2018 join us for a day of Education, Advocacy and Action for those living with HIV and support World AIDS Day celebrated annually on December 1st.
1.1 Million people are living with HIV in the United States. About 36.7 Million worldwide. (CDC and UNAID stats, 2018). If left untreated, HIV can lead to AIDS. The number of individuals living with HIV today suggests a stronger need for more access to education, treatment and prevention measures to help eliminate stigmas and combat this disease.
In an effort to help equip individuals with the necessary tools to break this cycle, a collaborative response between Asian Human Services and Roosevelt University student organizations and campus support services are working in solidarity for a worthy cause.
Here is how you can get involved:
