Thursday Is World AIDS Day

Thursday is World AIDS Day and this year marks 30 years of the global fight against the disease.
This morning we start a week-long series featuring the voices of Kansans who research, treat, fight and educate others about HIV and AIDS.
Today we hear from Teresa Romey, the Ryan White Part D Case Manager at the KU School of Medicine Wichita.  Part D is the part of the Ryan White Care Act that authorizes funds for the care of women and children with HIV and AIDS.
There is an event to acknowledge the local and national history of HIV, celebrate the advances in care, and remember those who have been lost, Thursday evening beginning at 6:30.
More information about the event.
