INDIANA: Indianapolis Students and Health Officials to Help Promote Awareness of HIV at Annual Event


Greenfield Daily Reporter (Indiana) (11.04.2013)

An article in the Greenfield Daily Reporter stated that the 10th Annual Statewide HIV Awareness event this Thursday will bring together health officials and students from Warren Central High School, Herron High School, and other Indianapolis schools to discuss HIV prevention and promotion awareness strategies. The event, which will take place at Indianapolis’s Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet School, will highlight performances by Asante Children's Theatre and Young Actors Theatre. Indiana has more than 10,000 HIV- or AIDS-infected residents, with approximately 6,000 local deaths attributed to AIDS since 1982. The Attucks students will talk to teens in Swaziland later this month on a planned HIV awareness trip.
