AIDS at 30: More about teens and less about adults

SYRACUSE, NY – It has been nearly 30 years since Americans first heard of the disease that would come to be called AIDS.

WRVO's Ellen Abbott takes a look back at a deadly disease, introduces us to people living with AIDS today, and looks ahead to what the next 30 years might bring.
