Just because Iowa is far from the coasts and contains no big cities, residents of the Hawkeye State are -not- immune from killer diseases like AIDS. Tomorrow (Sunday) is World AIDS Day. Sharon Miller is the HIV/AIDS coordinator at the American Red Cross’ Central Iowa chapter. Miller says she’d like to see a couple of things accomplished tomorrow, to fight discrimination and to more aggressively promote HIV and AIDS awareness. Miller says the number of AIDS cases is rising in Iowa and people need to be aware.Two high-profile celebrities will be in Iowa over the next few days promoting AIDS awareness. Bono , the singer for the rock band U-2, will be in Iowa City on Monday while former L-A Lakers star “Magic” Johnson will be in Des Moines on Tuesday.
