World AIDS Day, Dec. 1, has been observed since 1988 to create awareness of testing and treatment for HIV/AIDS. This year, the Pinellas event will be at a new site.

The Gibbs campus of St. Petersburg College at 6605 5th Ave N. in St. Petersburg will host the event from 11 AM to 3 PM on its Quad Lawn. There will be free health screenings, food, entertainment, prizes and more. This year’s theme is “One World Getting to Zero,” as in no new infections.

The event is organized by the Pinellas Planning Partnership, which includes the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, and St. Petersburg College.
