“State of AIDS” will be Tuesday, Nov. 30. Rollins School of Public Health Dean James Curran will deliver a keynote address, followed by a discussion by a panel of experts.

This event, created jointly by Residence Life and Housing and Student Health and Counseling Services, will be held in the Few Hall multipurpose room at 7 p.m.

Panelists are Carlos del Rio, professor of global health at Rollins; Harriet Robinson, chief of microbiology and immunology in the School of Medicine; Mary Loftus, associate editor of Emory Magazine; and Paige Parvin, editor of Emory Magazine. Brittany Miller, Class of 2011, will be the student moderator.

This year’s “Quilt on the Quad” will be held on McDonough Field on Wednesday, Dec. 1. This will be the largest collegiate display of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. In addition to the quilt display, the names of the victims will be read.
