VSU raises AIDS awareness

November 29, 2005

Valdosta - A South Georgia college is raising awareness on AIDS and letting its students know if they're at risk.

Thursday is World AIDS Day, and Valdosta State University is organizing events all week to educate students on the disease.  Tuesday, they offered free HIV tests to students and staff. More than 50 people turned out to get tested.

"It's important for people to know their status and where they stand, because in knowing, you decrease the spread of HIV and AIDS," said Christina Jamison, Organizer.

Thursday night, the college will host a lecture series with a guest speaker who is living with AIDS.
