This year not only marks the 19th year of the inception of W.O.M.E.N., but also the 19th anniversary of National HIV Testing Day, the perfect time to take advantage of TWO tools in HIV prevention. This Thursday, June 27, 2013, Women On Maintaining Education and Nutrition will be conducting FREE and CONFIDENTIAL HIV Testing from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. In addition to testing, we will provide integral information, resources, and one on one counseling to inform and educate those who are interested as well as complimentary refreshments for all participants!
Today, it is estimated that every 9.5 minutes, someone in the United States is infected with HIV. According to aids.gov, over 1 million people in the United States are infected with HIV while an astonishing 1 in 5 people living with HIV are unaware of their infection. Don’t let yourself become a statistic and take advantage of what is being offered to you right in your very backyard. Take control of your life and know your status, all it takes is 20 minutes and a quick, painless swab of your mouth.
