Long Island College Hospital of Brooklyn, in collaboration with Brownsville Multi-Services Family Health Center, will offer free HIV testing in recognition of National HIV Testing Day, June 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 180,000 to 280,000 people nationwide are HIV-positive but are unaware of their status.
HIV counseling and testing enables people with HIV to take steps to protect their own health and that of their partners, and helps people who test negative get the information they need to stay uninfected.
All testing is anonymous and confidential, and will take place in Long Island College Hospital’s Fuller Building, sixth floor, 339 Hicks Street at Atlantic Avenue.
Each person tested will receive a free gift. For more, call 718-780-1691.
