More than 36 million people globally were living with HIV in 2016. And more than 12,000 of them live in Missouri. To combat this global epidemic, Webster University is working with the African Renaissance and Diaspora Network, Inc. (ARDN) on a set of global initiatives for AIDS awareness and prevention.
The details of this project will be revealed at a press conference on World AIDS Day, Friday, Dec. 1, at 10 a.m. in the Browning Hall auditorium. Richard Gant, chair of ARDN’s Arts and Culture Committee, will be on hand for the event along with Christopher Miles, the global motorsport marketing adviser for ARDN, who will utilize Starting Grid’s various global motorsport activations to further amplify the UNAIDS “Protect the Goal” and “Racing To Zero” HIV/AIDS advocacy campaign. Dorinda Walker, a vice president of Consumer Strategy and Key Initiatives within Multicultural Marketing for Prudential’s U.S. Businesses, will speak at the event.
