Brief Biographical Sketch:

Stanford Dance Marathon seeks to inspire, educate, and mobilize the community to combat HIV/AIDS and support international health by raising a meaningful amount of money for our beneficiaries through a year of fundraising, education, and community-building. This collaborative effort among student groups, university administration, and the surrounding community culminates in a 24-hour Dance Marathon of wakeful and active solidarity.

S624: HIV/AIDS: A World Epidemic. What Can We Do? in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
Our two hour class will start with simple facts about the impact of the disease both locally and internationally. Because our local beneficiary works specifically with people 26 and under, they have great information that is relevant to both high school and college student. We will also provide information on health care in other countries such as Rwanda where our beneficiary is currently located. The rest of the class will involve us explaining what students can do at their schools to raise money and awareness to combat HIV/AIDS. This will be a session of brainstorming ideas from them but at the same time us explaining what we do and how we do it. The goal is to start getting some of the schools around here to have their own Dance Marathons or even just a 6 hour event. This is great for anyone that loves to fundraise, wants to learn more about HIV/AIDS and its impact, and anyone who likes to plan parties or dances.
