Fighting the stigma of AlDS

In recognition of World AIDS Day, hundreds of students and city residents lined Dodge Street for a candlelight vigil Wednesday. Each candle represented someone who died from AIDS. The vigil began at 4:30 p.m. and followed a health fair with STD testing from the Douglas County Health Department and HIV testing by UNO Student Health Services. After the vigil, "One Week," a film about the AIDS epidemic, was screened in the Milo Bail Student Center Nebraska Room.
