On November 30, the 5th edition of our traditional scientific exhibition took place with to commemorate World AIDS Day. The event took place in the multi-purpose room of the Politécnico Calasanz San Eduardo, with the participation of nine exhibiting groups and more than 200 students of the school.
Wanting to do something different each year that involves local youth with a focus on education and prevention, a team made up of the Clínica de Familia, the Provincial Health Directorate and the Módulo Anexo Maternos Infantil (MAMI), were in charge of the organization of this beautiful activity. With this objective in mind, this year we carried out this activity with the nursing students of the Politécnico Calasanz San Eduardo, with the purpose of having future health professionals free of stigma and discrimination. In the same way, we had the participation of the center’s communication group, who was in charge of the photographs and videos of the activity.
