Friday: March marks HIV awareness

 

An HIV Awareness March will begin at 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16, in East Palo Alto. Participants will march from Jones Mortuary at 660 Donohoe St. to East Palo Alto City Hall at 2415 University Ave., where community members will have a chance to speak at 6 p.m.

The march is sponsored by the San Mateo County Health System's STD/HIV Program. The first HIV Awareness March was held in 1996.

Half of new HIV infections in the United States are among the African American community, according to the San Mateo County Health System. In San Mateo County, 3 percent of the population is African American, with 23 percent living in East Palo Alto.

For more information, call Danielle Castro, program supervisor for the STD/HIV Education and Prevention Program of San Mateo County, at 573-2898 or e-mail dacastro@co.sanmateo.ca.us.

We need HIV/AIDS education. It's very important!! CDC has granted CSU $1.9M for HIV/AIDS education.
