The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one out of six people living with HIV/AIDS in America is unaware of their status.
In an effort to encourage people to get tested and know their status, the Coastal Health District HIV program and Savannah State University’s “Know to Live” Program have teamed up to hold a free HIV testing event from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Wednesday, September 7, at the King Frazier Student Center on the SSU campus.
Testing is confidential and will be done without the use of a needle.
Those tested will get results in 20 minutes.
A follow-up visit will be scheduled for anyone who tests positive and counseling will be made available.
For more information, (912) 353-3276.
The event is open to the public.
