June 27 is National HIV Testing Day. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates about 1 in 7 people with HIV don’t know they have it. This year’s theme, #DoingItMyWay is part of the Act Against AIDS initiative created to build awareness for HIV testing and prevention. Authorities say HIV testing should be a part of every adult’s health routine.
The St. Clair County Health Department offers confidential rapid HIV testing, by appointment, at two locations. The Main Office located at 3415 28th Street, Port Huron and the Teen Health Center (ages 10-21) at 2215 Court St, Port Huron. Testing provides accurate information about HIV/AIDS, transmission and how to reduce your risk of infection. For more information about their services call (810) 987-5300 or visit our website at www.scchealth.co. Also, you can follow them on social media @scchdmi.
