AIDS at the Brooklyn Campus
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. Wed like to do an even
bigger day next year.
