World AIDS day

The Slippery Rock University HOPE (Healthy Outreach Through Peer Education) Peer Educators hosted an informational program in conjunction with World AIDs Day Dec. 1 in the Smith Student Center's commuter lounge. World Aids Day is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, and mourning those who have died of the disease. This marks the second year that HOPE has spearheaded a collaborative educational event in conjunction with World AIDs Day, however the group has been providing some education and awareness in recognition of the event for the past eight years.
