If you are a member of the Vassar Community, check out the Department of Athletics & Physical Education’s new virtual health & fitness program. Meanwhile, we urge everyone to comply with Gov. Cuomo’s executive order by maintaining a six-foot distance from others in public and washing hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.

Join the Office of Health Promotion and Education, CHOICE, and the LGBTQ Center for the opening reception of Then and Now: AIDS in Time and Love Heals. The purpose of the exhibit is to help increase awareness, fight prejudice, and improve education about HIV/AIDs through a collection of artwork that depicts the changing perception of AIDS over time and across the world. The exhibit will be on display through December 11. Love Heals is a New York City-based organization that provides HIV/AIDS education to college-aged individuals. Through an interactive workshop with someone who works in HIV/AIDS education and is also HIV-positive, we hope that students will garner a better understanding for the implications of living with and working in the field of HIV prevention and research, while simultaneously working to destigmatize and break down common misconceptions about those affected by HIV. Cupcakes and light snacks will be provided.

Date: Saturday, December 1, 2018

Time: 5:30-8pm

The opening reception will be held from 5:30-7:00.
