World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day

As part of World AIDS Day tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 1, students at Fairfield University are invited to wear red and attend the AIDS Health Fair in the John A. Barone Campus Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students will also be collecting monetary and non-perishable goods donations for the Mid-Fairfield AIDS Project (MFAP) Food Pantry.

Renée T. White, Ph.D., professor of sociology and co-director of Fairfield's Program in Black Studies, is the advisor for the events. Dr. White also serves as co-editor of the Journal of HIV/AIDS Prevention in Children & Youth (Haworth Press).

The events on Friday cap a week of activities that included the selling each day of pins by Face AIDS, with all proceeds going to Partners in Health. Other activities included the screening of "And the Band Played On" and "A Closer Walk," along with the dramatic reading of a student play and a Face AIDS student panel.
