PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Dec. 1 is World AIDS Day. It has been nationally recognized since 1988. Multiple organizations in Central Illinois joined together to bring awareness to HIV/AIDS. For at least five years, Friends of Central Illinois and the Peoria Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc have teamed up to bring awareness. This year they hosted an event at the George Washington Carver Community Center. Joshua Morgan of Peoria Heights shared his story with the audience. Morgan was diagnosed with HIV two and a half years ago.
