Jennifer Miller serves as Case Manager for the Riley County/Manhattan Health Department. She talks about one trend that’s worrisome. The number of  women diagnosed is steadily increasing. 21 percent of the newly diagnosed HIV/AIDS cases in 2009 in Kansas were women

Miller was on the K-State campus Thursday for a full day of activities recognizing world AIDs day, including free testing, a panel discussion, and evening candlelight ceremony.
