National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
Pin the protection, condom relay races and safer sex Jeopardy are just a few of the games you can play at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Safer Sex Fest. The event is being hosted by the university’s Center for Research on Women and Gender on March 9 in observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness day.
The Safer Sex Fest is in its second year at UIC.
“The goal is to raise awareness about women’s sexual health risk, and also raise awareness on how to protect themselves from STIs and HIV,” said Kristine Zimmerman, community outreach director at the center.
While the event focuses on women’s health, Zimmerman said it is important for everyone to get more comfortable with the idea of safer sex.
“Every game, no matter how silly, has a purpose,” she said.
The event is free and open to the public.
