dc.description.abstractDuring the semester, I conducted research on AIDS and worked closely with the Wellness Center in Ann Arbor, a volunteer organization dedicated to serving the needs of persons with AIDS (PWAs) and people who are HIV positive. During a training session for Wellness Center volunteers, I participated in a number of interactive exercises as well and listened to a panel of HIV positive persons and PWAs, in an effort to familiarize the volunteers with the issues pertaining to AIDS as well as expose us to PWAs. One list entitled, "Helpful Tips on Peer Counseling" will be included in the paper, interspersed with commentary and discussion about my experiences while working with Charles. Following this list will be a section on death and dying, specifically about Charles' death. Next I will discuss some of the social issues that pertained to Charles' life, such as social stigma and prejudice. In conclusion will be suggestions for social change in the future.en_US
