Get Tested! (Pass It On)

(To forward this message, click on the EMAIL button at the top or bottom of this page.)
Did you know that one out of every four HIV positive Americans doesn’t know he or she has the virus?

Wednesday, June 27 is National HIV Testing Day, hosted by the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) to encourage early HIV diagnosis and routine testing.

Getting an oral test for HIV, which involves a simple swab of your cheek, is quick (20 minutes) and painless. It could save your life to get tested, because HIV treatment can work better when you’re diagnosed early.

So, take an HIV test—and take control of your health!
