BALTIMORE, Md. (November 30, 2011) – Tomorrow, on Worlds AIDS Day, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will speak at B’More Aware of HIV: The Living Red Ribbon event to garner awareness for AIDS/HIV, where over 4,000 people will attempt to break Guinness Book of World Records by forming a human red ribbon comprised of students, local church groups, business and government leaders students, and residents of Baltimore City.
Funds raised at the Living Red Ribbon event will go towards coordinated programs and services for those who live with HIV. The event is a collaboration of the Partnership for Life, Coppin State University and their supporters. Other activities taking place throughout the day include live music, educational booths, HIV testing, health screenings, and refreshments. In addition, the Coppin State University Marching Band will be performing.
Lt. Governor Brown leads the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s efforts to reduce costs, expand access, and improve the quality of care for all Marylanders. Under the leadership of Governor O’Malley and Lt. Governor Brown, Maryland has implemented reforms that have expanded health coverage to over 300,000 Marylanders and put the State in position to maximize the Affordable Care Act (ACA). According to independent reports from the Hilltop Institute, federal health reform will save Maryland $850 million over 10 years and cut in half the number of uninsured Marylanders.
