New play at TimeLine theater traces history of AIDS epidemic

Much has changed since the first World AIDS Day 25 years ago. The poverty and disease fighting organization ONE says new data suggests that we could achieve the beginning of the end of AIDS as early as 2015. What challenges remain? TimeLine Theatre's production of The Normal Heart takes a closer look at history of the epidemic. We talk with the play's director Nick Bowling, AIDS Foundation of Chicago CEO David Ernesto Munar and Dr. Lisa Henry-Reid of Stroger Hospital about the current fight against the disease and how informed younger generations are about prevention.
