June 27, 2017 is National HIV Testing Day, a day to get the facts about HIV and get tested!

HIV testing remains one of the key elements to getting early and more effective treatment. On June 27, 2017, the Public Health Division of the Guilford County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will hold a HIV informational and testing event at the DHHS Building located at 1203 Maple Street, Greensboro. This event will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Information from various community programs and snacks will be available.

According for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and one in eight people don’t know they have it. Nearly 45,000 people find out they have HIV every year.

Come join for the National HIV Testing event and get tested. Knowing your status may save your life by providing early and more effective treatment options.
