GLASSBORO -- Nearly 100 teen-age boys and girls from Camden and Gloucester counties participated in the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority International Day of Service this Saturday at Rowan University.

The sorority organized the community workshop to teach young students about HIV/AIDS and African-Americans.

''It's important because HIV/AIDS is the number one killer of African-American women and it is becoming the number one killer in teen-agers, aside from accidents,'' said Delores Henry, the first vice president of the N.J. Garden City Alumnae Chapter.

The students intently watched ''Sister's Keeper'' -- a documentary about the realities of AIDS, produced by the event's keynote speaker, Mustapha Khan Jr.

''This is important because it is up to us to help change the world and this epidemic that is happening in Africa today,'' Khan said.
