Nursing Students Get Creative to Mark World AIDS Day

Truman nursing students in the Rural Public Health Nursing course recently completed their outreach project for fall semester. Under more normal circumstances, plans would have been made to conduct a candlelight observance of World AIDS Day, which falls on Dec. 1 every year. With current health protection recommendations in place discouraging gatherings, and the early end of the semester, students had to be creative. Plans were made for a virtual event marking this important issue. The students provided an educational program about HIV and AIDS at the Nov. 10 Nursing Student Council meeting. Students used a variety of media to publicize the event and invited anyone who wanted to attend. More than 100 people participated via Zoom.
