Baylor Observes Aids Awareness Day

Nov. 12, 1996

The Baylor University Office of Health Education and Wellness will sponsor AIDS Awareness Day, Monday, Nov. 18.

During the day, Quentin and Jennifer Smith will speak at 10 a.m. in Waco Hall during Chapel Forum on "Living with AIDS in a Marriage." Jennifer has been diagnosed with AIDS. The couple will speak again at noon in the Barfield Drawing Room at the Bill Daniel Student Center. There will be a question and answer period after their presentations.

The Smiths are both speakers for AIDS Services of Austin and Jennifer speaks for the San Antonio AIDS Foundation. They also have been speakers for the AIDS Consortium of Texas. Both are graduates of Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos.

The purpose of the program is to help the Baylor community become more aware of how AIDS is dealt with in a marriage, said TaNunya Roberts, graduate assistant in the Health Education and Wellness office. The couple visited the campus in 1994 and the students were open to their message, Roberts said.

"They were very well received two years ago so they are coming back again," she said.

For more information, contact Cassie Findley, director of the Office of Health Education and Wellness or Roberts at 755-3520.
