HIV Testing (RSVP Here)
During Sex Positive Week, the AIDS Leadership Foothills-Area Alliance (ALFA), the Black Student Association (BSA), the Henderson Springs LGBT Center, the Wellness Educators for Change, Advocacy, and student Needs (WE CAN), and Wellness and Prevention Services will host the bi-annual HIV Testing Day. More than 1.2 million people in the US are living with HIV, and 1 in 8 of them don't know it. Over the last decade, the annual number of new HIV diagnoses declined 19% thanks to free testing sites and increased awareness. Testing is FREE, EASY, and FAST! Participants will receive a free t-shirt (will supplies last). This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff.
