(Boston)— Boston Medical Center is inviting friends, family and community members to attend this year’s World AIDS Day event on Thursday, Dec. 1, and experience a coming together of a variety of individuals and groups who share a commitment to fighting the AIDS epidemic.

The free event, beginning at 10 a.m. in the Menino Pavilion at Boston Medical Center, will include a keynote address by Dawn Breedon, a motivational speaker who was diagnosed with HIV in 1991 while pregnant with her first child.

An added feature to this year’s event is the public display of The AIDS PhotoMosaic by Face-to-Face Malawi, a multifaceted project that focuses on the culture, society and the fight against HIV in Africa. An informational health fair and free rapid-HIV testing will be provided. A portion of the AIDS Memorial Quilt will also be on display.

For more information, please call 617-414-7059.
