World AIDS Day 2008

Today marks the twentieth anniversary of World AIDS Day. Though we should be working to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic more than one day per year, I do encourage you to take some time today to educate yourself and those around you about AIDS in today's world. Take a minute and think how long it's been since you've been tested — is it time? We've come a long way since 1988 — you can now get rapid HIV testing with no needles (results can take as little as 20 minutes).

You can also attend the World AIDS Day reception at the Firehouse Gallery on Church Street in Burlington tonight from 6pm-8pm. For a full listing of World AIDS Day events this week in Vermont, check out Vermont CARES (you can also find testing info here, too).

Playing it safe,
