Sample Request Received by an OMHRC Information Specialist
Hello, I am a sophomore attending Alabama A&M University in Huntsville , Alabama . I have intentions on running for Miss Alabama A&M in 2008-2009 and my platform is "Preserving Our People: The AIDS Epidemic". I am writing to request that you help me to research, define, educate, and involve myself and others in the epidemic that is slowly destroying our people.
