On Saturday, Nov. 30, The Center will host the annual World AIDS Day event. The day will be filled with fun and exciting activities. There will be food, music, guest speakers, performers, touching tributes, and important educational information/materials.

World AIDS Day, designated Dec. 1, every year since 1988, is an international day dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection and mourning those who have died of the disease. Government and health officials, non-governmental organizations, and individuals around the world observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control.

Free HIV testing will be available onsite at the Wellness Clinic.
