Free HIV Testing for National Black HIV/AIDS Day

Posted By on Thu, Feb 4, 2010 at 4:11 PM


Did you know that, in Shelby County, 87 percent of men living with HIV/AIDS and 92 percent of women with the disease are African American?

Yep, it's true. Those numbers come from the Memphis and Shelby County Health Department. As millions of Americans gnaw on hot wings and celery during SuperBowl XLIV (go Saints!) this Sunday, February 7th, they should take a moment to reflect on the AIDS epidemic on National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

In recognition of the day, Planned Parenthood of Memphis is offering several days of free testing for anyone, regardless of race.

Monday, February 8th - Memphis Towers Community Room - 4pm - 6pm

Tuesday, February 9th - LeMoyne Owen College Student Center -12pm - 3pm

Wednesday, February 10th - University of Memphis Student Union - 10am - 2pm

Wednesday, February 10th - Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center - 6pm - 9pm
