Why did you decide to take a class on HIV and social work?
Megan Springsted: I'm a student in the graduate MSW program here at Fordham University. My uncle died of AIDS complications in 1995, so when I was thinking of going back to school and pursuing social work, and I saw this course become available, I thought, "I want to know what's going on with AIDS" -- because I only have a history of knowing about it through his experience, but there's been several years since then. So I was thinking, "What's happening? What's going on?" Thinking that, in social work, I'm going to have some clients who are living with HIV/AIDS, so I need to know what's going on with the disease.
