Dipaolo raised similar concerns, emphasizing his belief that the media often improperly portrays the AIDS issue or fails to give it the coverage it deserves.
"The media makes it like AIDS isn't a problem anymore," Dipaolo said.
In closing, the panel encouraged students to become involved with the fight against AIDS.

Students who attended the forum seemed generally satisfied.
