The college-wide initiative is part of a partnership with Greater than AIDS and is dedicated to increasing awareness of the deadly diseases.

On Dec. 1, each campus will offer counseling and testing as well as additional activities, including the distribution of informational packets and presentations by people living with HIV/AIDS. All events, including HIV/AIDS testing, are free and open to the public.

According to statistics, Miami-Dade County tops the list of people living with HIV/AIDS in, where one percent of residents are affected. The goal of MDC>AIDS is to have one-percent of the MDC student body tested that day.
