Event Description:
In observance of the 20th anniversary of the 1993 March on Washington, the students of LGBTA along with the Stony Brook University Center for Prevention and Outreach will host a complimentary screening of David France's critically acclaimed documentary film, How to Survive a Plague.

5:00 pm: Reception, Poetry Center (2nd floor, Humanities)
7:00 pm: Screening of David France's How to Survive A Plague (Humanities 1006)
9:00 pm: Post-Screening Panel Discussion

"How To Survive A Plague is the untold story of the efforts that turned AIDS into a mostly manageable condition and the improbable group of young men and women who, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, and helped identify promising new compounds, moving them through trials and into drugstores in record time. These drugs saved their lives and ended the darkest days of the epidemic, while virtually emptying AIDS wards in American hospitals.

These activists' efforts created a paradigm for patient empowerment and health care activism that has since been replicated in the fight against many other diseases from breast cancer to heart disease. And as AIDS spread to Africa, India, and Asia, these activists helped open local groups, exporting AIDS activism to press for better, and more accessible, treatment." (Source: IMDB).

With this event, the organizers aspire to create a place where students, alumni and friends of the University can engage in a rich and powerful discussion of the impact of the AIDS epidemic on Stony Brook University and the greater Long Island/New York community.
