The Lake County Health Department is collaborating with several local partners to provide an event on World AIDS Day -- Sunday, Dec. 1 -- that encourages people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS. A luncheon from 3 to 4 p.m. precedes the bilingual event from 4 to 5 p.m. at Waukegan High School's Trapp Auditorium, 2325 Brookside, Waukegan, with a short reception to follow. It will feature music, dance, the sharing of inspirational thoughts and a candle-lighting ceremony. Both are free and open to the public. The local campaign is focused on erasing the stigma often associated with HIV/AIDS. The Lake County World AIDS Day committee will continue the theme "Stand Against Stigma." This HIV/AIDS-related stigma includes unfavorable attitudes, beliefs, and policies directed toward people living with these conditions, as well as their loved ones and communities. Call (847) 377-8450.
