The Media Studies Department at Georgia’s Paine College will commemorate National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day by hosting an HIV/AIDS Awareness Forum. Skyy Banks, ambassador for the Georgia Red Pump Project, will be the featured speaker. The event will take place March 8, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. in Paine College’s Candler Memorial Library Ballroom. After the lecture, event organizers will invite all interested attendees to be photographed on the red carpet, with the subsequent image becoming a part of the national support day activities. The annual nationwide observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on March 10 illuminates information about the disease and encourages all to take action and share knowledge in a variety of ways; event organizers urge attendees to use social media platforms to share the HIV/AIDS impact on women and girls.
