Talking About AIDS at the Brooklyn Campus

As part of a Campus AIDS Awareness Day, student Brian Best helped distribute free condoms as well as information to prevent HIV infection. In Brooklyn, more women are infected with HIV, which causes AIDS, than in any other part of New York City. AIDS is especially prevalent in Bedford Stuyvesant, Downtown, East New York, Fort Greene and Williamsburg. The March 6 awareness effort was sponsored by the Student Activities Office, whose director, Karlene Jackson Thompson, said, “Our speaker and the materials we distributed throughout the campus were well received by the students. We’d like to do an even bigger day next year.”
