Free Confidential HIV Screenings

What: Free Confidential Information about HIV & Screenings
When: Thursday, July 1 10 a.m.—3 p.m.
Where: METRO Transit Center
                   Community Room
                   631 S. Broadway
                   Akron, Ohio

In recognition of National HIV Testing Day, Summa Akron City Hospital
encourages you to “Know Your Status.” Free confidential HIV screenings
will be available to the community at the Metro Transit Center.

National HIV Testing Day is an annual campaign which encourages at-risk
individuals* to receive voluntary HIV counseling and testing.

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.

For more information about National HIV Testing Day, call The C.A.R.E.
Center at (330) 375-4851.

CDC recommends being tested at least once a year if you do things that can transmit HIV infection, such as injecting drugs or steroids with used injection equipment , having sex for money or drugs, having sex with an HIV infected person, having more than one sex partner since your HIV test or having a sex partner who has
had other sex partners since your last HIV test.

With special thanks to our partners the
Akron Department of Health, Violet’s
Cupboard, Native American Indian and
Veterans Center, Inc.
