Counseling students build HIV awareness

As World AIDS Day 2011 approaches, students in the Counseling and Educational Development program are doing their part to increase HIV/AIDS awareness on campus and beyond campus.

Graduate students in Dr. Christine Murray’s Sexuality Counseling course, in partnership with Triad Health Project, have launched “I HAVE HIV Awareness” to provide education and resources, and promote safe sex practices.

As part of the “I Have HIV Awareness” campaign, the class is sponsoring a free movie showing on campus on World AIDS Day, Thursday, Dec. 1. The film, “Girl Positive,” starring Jennie Garth, begins at 7 p.m. in Room 100, Ferguson Building. A Q&A session with representatives from Triad Health Project follows.

“I Have HIV Awareness” culminates with the class’s participation in Triad Health Project’s 20th Annual Winter Walk on Sunday, Dec. 4, 2011.
