The Campus Activities Board will be bringing Scott Fried to campus for a lecture entitled “AIDS, Love, & Staying Alive” on Thursday, Mar. 27 in the center for the Arts (Building 1P) Lecture Hall at 2:30pm.
Scott Fried is an award-winning international public speaker, HIV/AIDS educator, and author. He has devoted the past 21 years of his life to lecturing in nearly every state in this country, as well as Israel, the UK, Canada, Holland, and Honduras, reaching more than a million people. He has spoken at over 1,000 institutions, including colleges and universities, high schools and middle schools, summer camps, synagogues, and churches.
In his lecture, Scott tells the story of his infection with HIV at the age of 24 and places the reality of HIV infection in a context that all young people can understand: vulnerability, loneliness, isolation, and hopelessness. Come and learn how HIV and STIs are still affecting young people and how we can become philosophical about the mistakes we make.
Participating offices include: the LGBTQ Resource Center, the Multi-faith Center, Health and Wellness Services, the Department of Nursing, and Pluralism and Diversity.
This is a CLUE-certified event.
