Suzanne Engo To Speak on HIV/AIDS Awareness Medgar Evers College

Medgar Evers College always seems to have some great events happening right within the doors of their educational center. They have the tendency to not only keep their students educated to the best of standards, but also keep them informed with what is going on in today’s world.

Beginning May 8, 2011 begins HIV/AIDS awareness week. It is a week of getting the message across to the world that HIV/AIDS is real and that there are many people living with the virus. It is a week to promote the HIV/AIDS prevention.

It is common that many college in their Freshman years where they experience independence, enter the world of sexual contact for the first time. But even in the first interaction of sexual activity, a person can come in contact with HIV/AIDS and/or many of the other several sexually transmitted diseases.

Suzanne Engo has conquered tremendous feats in her lifetime. Since the age of six years old, she has been dedicated to fighting against the HIV/AIDS virus. She was named one of the top 40 youth who fight against AIDS by MTV. When she was twelve, she and several women co-founded African Action on AIDS (AAA). She has dedicated her life to living a life of fitness and AIDS awareness.  Of some of the many walk/runs she has participated in, she has run across the states from NYC to Chicago and internationally she ran across parts of Europe and Africa. She also cofounded the New York AIDS Film Festival.

In the Founder’s Auditorium of Medgar Evers Bedford Building, Medgar Evers College will take part in the fight against HIV/AIDS. AIDS activist Suzanne Engo will deliver a keynote address on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 from 11:30 AM to 12:45 PM as part of HIV/AIDS awareness week.
