World AIDS Day
Panel Presentation and Candlelight Vigil
Panel Presentation and Candlelight Vigil, 5:15-7:30 p.m.
Organized in collaboration with the HIV/AIDS Coalition of Ventura County, including Ventura County Public Health and Planned Parenthood of California Central Coast, this presentation is part of the county’s annual observance of World AIDS Day. We invite everyone to consider HIV/AIDS not only as a global-health issue but also as a social-justice issue that impacts local communities. Adina Nack, PhD, medical sociologist and professor at Cal Lutheran, will start by sharing global, national and local updates on the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Then, Neil and Keith Coffman-Grey from Quilt Project Gold Coast will describe the history and continued significance of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. In addition, we’ll hear about personal experiences of living with HIV/AIDS. The event will conclude with Colleen Windham-Hughes, MDiv, PhD, and students leading a nondenominational Candlelight Vigil.
