Prince George's County hosts AIDS awareness event

LARGO, Md. (AP) — Health officials in Prince George's County are sponsoring an event designed to promote AIDS awareness.

The event Monday will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the county community college in Largo.

It'll include free HIV testing, education on HIV/AIDS prevention and a special performance from actor Tray Chaney, who appeared on HBO series "The Wire."

The event is in honor of World AIDS Day, which was commemorated on Sunday.

County officials say the county ranks second in Maryland for cases of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.
