World AIDS Day Activities Being Planned for UVI Campuses

Activities commemorating World AIDS Day 2014 are being planned on UVI’s campus on St. Croix and St. Thomas. This year’s theme is “Focus, Partner, Achieve: An AIDS-Free Generation.” UVI’s Substance Abuse and HIV/AIDS Prevention Student Peer Educators and the Health Services Division have joined forces to host a number of events. Some lead up events include:

  • Monday, Nov. 24, HIV testing is planned on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix. Also a lunch with River Houston is scheduled. River Huston is an AIDS activist and motivational speaker who contracted HIV during her senior year in college. 
  • Tuesday, Nov. 25 HIV testing is scheduled on the St. Thomas Campus. Also, a lunch session with River Huston and a Red Pump/Red Tie event are planned.

On World AIDS Day – Monday, Dec. 1 – organizers will distribute red ribbons and other promotional materials on both campuses. For more information, contact Alyssa Ryan at (340) 693-1122.
