HIV and AIDS have been in the news a lot lately, and not for a good reason. Although treatments and discoveries for how to best fight the epidemic continue to move at lightning-fast speed, there is troubling news about the increase in HIV infection among young people — those of us born after the darkest days of HIV/AIDS in the United States.
The University of Minnesota has been actively engaged in research and public policy on this critical public health issue. That’s why a number of University students and staff decided to start a team for this year’s Minnesota AIDS Walk to benefit the Minnesota AIDS Project.
If you’re interested in getting involved and showing that the University supports both people living with HIV/AIDS and the need to find a cure, I hope you’ll take a moment to consider joining our new team.
