(Englewood, NJ, December 4, 2012) – A section of the national AIDS Memorial Quilt was on display in the lobby of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in commemoration of World AIDS Day on December 1. Englewood Hospital received Block 3046, one of the many pieces distributed nationwide to serve as memorial to those who have died from HIV/AIDS. The quilt is maintained by the Names Project and is comprised of panels made by family members and friends who have lost a loved one to HIV/AIDS. In an effort to help raise awareness and support for the cause, Englewood Hospital teamed up with The Englewood Health Department to provide educational resources and information to the community. The Medical Center also distributed red wristbands bearing the words "EHMC Remembers World AIDS Day" as a tribute to those who are living with HIV/AIDS.
