BEND, OR -- Central Oregonians are honoring those who have contracted HIV and AIDS, and trying to correct stigmas about the disease on this World AIDS Day.  Heather Kaisner with Deschutes County Public Health says several events held Monday are designed to educate the public, including a free film screening, tonight.  "It's a documentary that follows four young adults that are affected by HIV in America today. And, we'll also be doing a candlelight vigil for those people living and who have passed away from HIV/AIDS."  Kaisner adds, "And, it's just a way to really, to talk about AIDS again, and to bring people together."  

 

Tonight's film screening and vigil start at 5 p.m. at the Bend Masonic Lodge. Kaisner says volunteers also held events at OSU-Cascades and COCC in Bend.  Health officials urge everyone to get tested for HIV. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in six Americans unknowingly has the disease.
