CCC World AIDS Day Events This Week Camden County College’s Office of Student Life and Activities will mark World AIDS Day with a number of activities on the Blackwood and Camden campuses from Dec. 1 through 5.

Dec. 1 was designated as World AIDS Day in 1988 and has been observed as such each year since then. Events scheduled on or around that date intend to raise awareness of a disease that, worldwide, has killed more than 25 million people. Approximately 39 million others are living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

CCC will display a section of the national AIDS Memorial Quilt in the atrium of the Connector Building on the Blackwood Campus throughout the week. Each panel of the quilt, which was begun in San Francisco in 1987, celebrates the life of a person who died due to AIDS. In addition, red ribbons – the international symbol for AIDS awareness – will be distributed across campus the morning of Dec. 1.

Scheduled events include:
