Lessons/suggestions Friday night events are difficult to schedule for students. Students are attracted by big name organizations like Partners in Health. Late night events are not ideal for speakers since much of the audience (about 80 people) wanted to leave after the movi

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
Comments Good event to promote AIDS awareness, but requires a signficant amount of effort to coordinate food, speakers, attendance, and captivating movie.
