"It's a matter of life and death," says Karen Gibson. Everyone needs to understand that the problem of AIDS is not going away.

The Glenelg High School PTSA is sponsoring a meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the school.

The program is "AIDS: What You Need to Know," and it's designed for students and their parents. We all hear more than we'd like about AIDS, but education is a key to helping stop the spread of AIDS.

A panel of AIDS experts will help educate participants about the problem in Howard County. Panel members are Lynn Shumake from the Howard County AIDS Alliance; Mary Mazzuca, Howard County Department of Health; Lenny, a person who has HIV/AIDS; and Peggy Schultz, who is with the Howard County Department of Education.
