Community leaders to read names of people lost to HIV/AIDS during World AIDS Day 2010 ceremony

image001In honor of World AIDS Day 2010, Miami Beach Community Health Center (MBCHC) and The NAMES Project Foundation-AIDS Memorial Quilt will join together today to present a special AIDS Memorial Quilt Opening ceremony.

"This symbolic event will portray the impact that HIV/AIDS has had on the lives of so many here and abroad," spokesman Michael Goodman said.

"During the Quilt Ceremony, hundreds of names of those who have been lost to HIV/AIDS will be read aloud by local community leaders and medical professionals involved with or supportive of area AIDS care providers," Goodman said. "At the same time, sections of the Quilt are opened and “laid to rest” for attendees to view. Miami Beach Community Health Center will also observe a moment of silence throughout the health care facility."

I will be among the readers at this morning's ceremony, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Miami Beach Community Health Center, 710 Alton Rd., Miami Beach.
