Members of the WSU Applebaum SNPhA chapter along with FAWN: Fighting AIDS With Nutrition, Kappa Psi and the Industry Pharmacists Organization passed out red ribbons – the universal symbol of awareness and support for people living with HIV/AIDS – and shared information on pre-exposure prophylactics (PreP).
