"The performing arts have been hit hard since the early years of the AIDS epidemic. Musicians, composers, lyricists, dancers, choreographers, actors, singers, directors, and many others have died. Who knows what these people may have achieved? We will never know the music that might have been," says Jeannie DiClementi, associate professor of psychology, whose research interests are in the areas of health psychology and HIV/AIDS education prevention. DiClementi will participate in a panel discussion, "AIDS Then and Now: A Conversation of the Last 25 Years," April 22 at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. The panel discussion is one of many events in observance of the 25th anniversary of the Fort Wayne AIDS Task Force.
