World AIDS Day Observance in the Science Commons

The Department of Chemistry took part in World AIDS Day with the Common Ground Collective, Emory Dance, and Moving in the Spirit. Music, dance, and a marching band all joined together on campus to raise awareness of AIDS. The Science Commons stage was funded in part by proceeds from the intellectual settlement for Emtriva, the drug that over 90% of AIDS patients take. We were honored to help raise awareness of the fight against AIDS, especially as rates of infection are on the rise in Atlanta. Following the performances, the crowd marched to the Dobbs University Center where the AIDS quilt was on view. Confidential HIV testing was also offered on campus (Tuesday, December 1st, from 10am-1pm.) [Emory News Center] [AJC] [Emory Wheel]
