Rally to call attention to AIDS treatment need

September 30, 2005


Organizers hope about 200 Kansas University students will attend a Campaign to End AIDS rally from noon to 1 p.m. today on the university's Watson Library lawn.

"It's a national grassroots effort, and we want to make the public aware of the medical needs that AIDS patients have," said Greg Mansfield, director of Douglas County AIDS Awareness.

Other sponsors of the event include The Center for Peer Health Education, KU's Sexuality Education Committee, the International Pharmacy Student Federation, Student Union Activities, The Light Center of Baldwin, Queers & Allies and Students for Reproductive Rights.

The rally will feature three speakers to call attention to the need to fully fund high-quality treatment and support services for those living with the disease, Mansfield said.
