World Aids Day is a worldwide commemoration dedicated to educating and motivating people around the world about HIV and AIDS. This year marks the 30th year that HIV is part of our lives. Currently there are about 21,000 Chicagoans living with HIV and many of them are unaware of their status. The goal of this G+ Hangout is to engage Chicagoans in a dialog about the importance of stopping the spread of HIV.
