MTV’s “Staying Alive Ignite” HIV/AIDS awareness campaign comes to campus April 21 & 22

April 15th, 2011 in Uncategorized 0 comments

As part of MTV’s “Staying Alive” campaign, “Ignite” addresses the stigmas of an HIV or AIDS diagnosis — as well as virusmtv_sa_logo1_formatted-copy education and attitudes about safe sex — against the backdrop of youth culture in various locales, including Kenya, Trinidad and Tobago, and Ukraine. On April 21st and 22nd, the campaign is coming to Boston University with a screening of Shuga: An HIV/AIDS Soap Opera in Kenya.

In addition to two screenings — one on the Medical Campus and another on the Charles River Campus — a post-screening discussion will be held at COM, featuring Georgia Arnold, Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility at MTV and Director of Staying Alive. Dean of Students Kenn Elmore will continue the discussion as part of his weekly Coffee & Conversation on Friday, April 22nd.
