AYD’s June Meeting:
Know Your Status, Get Tested!
The Health, Education and Environment Caucus is excited to invite you to Impact Positively: Know Your Status, Get Tested! In honor of National HIV Testing Day and in the spirit of HIV awareness, we will be partnering with NovaSalud (HIV education & prevention nonprofit) to provide free HIV testing following a presentation on the importance of knowing your HIV status. It will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington (4444 Arlington Blvd, Arlington, VA 22204) from 7:00pm – 8:30pm.
As HIV activist Josh Robbins says ”HIV is a virus, Stigma is the deadly disease”. After a brief presentation on the ongoing HIV epidemic we will take a look at the human element. People living with HIV will share their stories on what it’s like to live with the illness and stigma.
Throughout the event free and confidential HIV testing will be given on-site by NovaSalud’s HIV testing counselors. Know your status, get tested!
